BlackHeart Gremorie» Titles:
Demon Of The East, Davana Of Bare-Hand Fighting » Age:
8,000+ » Gender:
Male/Female [Ambiguous]» Affiliation/Rank:
Chaya Nation [Royal Guard]» Shifter Appearance Written: BlackHeart is known for his extensive armor which is as black as the night. This Armor Covers him generally from his head to his toes, primarily giving off the aura that he needs to be protected from others in terms of frailty or something like that. However if one will notice, his appearance has a sense of "Weight" about him aswell, as the armor seems to be composed of an immense amount of demonic energy, weight and constrictive forces. Which tend to give off the illusion or reduce his presence to that of a impossible to notice adversary.. a weak defenseless foe which should have a seconds time wasted on him. This is all part of the "Appearance" though, given the Davana Of Bare Handed Fightings appearance has a real purpose behind it, giving the sense of false security to the opponent and diminishing his offensive capabilities in terms of visual astetic's which are precisely there to give the illusion of weakness to the opponent.
This is one of the main reasons his shifter has been crafted to look so defensive. Its more for the look, merely a show in itself. Which is why the armor has spikes and a small diminutive size to further pull off the gross misconception that he may be a "Weak" fighter in need of using some kind of tool to defend himself. In fact, the armor itself is a major part of this facade, given the royal guard of chaya nations short-comings, it allows him to move about and further gives him a "Sluggish facade about him anyways this is his Shifter Appearance although below there will be some traits about his appearance which are in place precisely to show what the armor itself is for, and how it affects general things such as speed, strength and other important key variables.
T R A I T S
Energy Drain:When his armor is donned as part of his rigorous training his energy is being constantly sapped the compensate for the weight which is on his body at nearly all times. Energy that is drained is ingrained in the core, fluidly being redistributed through both the body and every single iota of his being. This is because the energy drain principle, unlike someone like Kenpachi's? is not primarily for just sealing away the mass amounts of energy which are present to begin with. Instead of using this to keep the energy from harming others, its using the energy to continue allowing the user to merely move outright. As for example, because of the armors immense weight, if it wasn't for the energy drain he couldn't even be able to move precisely in the first place.
By that of course, it means that in shifter state his body as part of his training is covered in immense amounts of armor, of the likes of which would easily crush his body without the physical augmentations he gains by displacing that massive amount of energy every second of the day, to keep his body from falling apart. So in this way, he uses this armor to train. But more importantly in the case of the reason it drains energy is because it is constantly using that energy again to keep the body thriving and alive. Kind of like a "Life-Support" is to a comatose being. Without it he would be clearly dead, no matter how strong he was in the first place. Because no being on strength alone is able to lift up that much weight every single second of the day. Its only in his case because his body is using that energy, to displace the weight and constantly keep his muscles energized that he is even able to do this feat.
All in all, this is why the energy drain, is not a trait which is used for supressing his energy from other beings, its more like something which is intended to be used because it is needed so that the davana himself can even stay alive in his shifter state period. In this way the energy drain is using all that energy for a purpose, keeping the user's body in peak physical condition so they can even begin to comprehend and bear the weight of that armor that they naturally have.
Immense Weight: As the name suggests, while most individuals wear armor to protect themselves and are okay with alittle weight, this armor is made specifically to be cumbersome , bulky and heavy. In fact his armor is heavy to the point that while walking his footsteps are ingrained even in the hardest of surfaces, such as if he was to walk ontop of a steel beam, or hardened cement, his footprints would still be indented in the surface, kept there by immense weight forcibly caving in the point his foot made contact with. This also is made to reduce his speed, given that he has base defense but this is made to limit him as much as possible. In fact with his armor equiped he is much slower.. which is why in shifter state his speed at most could reach advanced, even if his actual speed in his true state was much faster. Primarily this is due to the fact that in terms of combat, a bare handed fighter needs to be as strong as possible. Hence why an individual who is the conception of bare handed fighting would be burdening himself this much. Its all about discipline , no one needs to be immensley powerful they must have every waking moment of their life with training. Training and more Training. This is the reason for all this weight. Which makes a man who is really only the weight of 150 pounds, hold the weight that would be thousands of times that in reality.
For example, his breast plate, while it seems like he walks with ease with it, actually weighs about 70,000 pounds meaning that while most individuals think weight is nothing This armor just from the breast plate alone works to constantly train his body to be used to immense weight all the time, as beyond this his "Plate Legs" themselves weigh about the equivalent of 45,000 pounds together, meaning just from his main body he carries over 50 tons of weight, meaning that chances are he's not going anywhere any time soon. This is primarily why he is able to crack the ground when he walks in his base form, he is just so rediculously heavy that it is essentially to his opponents benifit that he stay in shifter form as long as possible. As well his gauntlets weigh about 25,000 pounds a peice , and his pauldron or armored boots weigh about 30,000 pounds a peice. Finally the helmet on his head weighs about 35,000 pounds. This means that he weighs around 100 tons give or take, just from the added weight of the armor that the male wears at every second of the day, atleast when he is in his shifter state.
Again though he wears this kind of "Armor" with its bulky added weight as a form of training. Considering he is at heart an individual who works and focuses on the arts. He doesn't feel that slacking off is something that is something that is acceptable. And of course since davana are beings which are born from strong focusand thought "Essentially" this is why his shifter state itself is like one big.. rigorous test which pushes the likes of blackheart to keep his heart, body and mind well disciplined. Also this is so that when in battle he has to focus and so that he works on his foot work and timing. As in battle it isn't a matter of who is able to move around the quickest, the one who has the most focus is the one generally speaking that is going to be the better combatant. This makes use of that assumption training the body to work without speed. Although these are all slight functions of the weight, which is just mainly there so that it trains the user, and further more its basically another handicap slowing the user down to make battle more interesting.
» Shifter Appearance Picture:
» True Appearance Written: His true appearance is simple. Armor which weighs him down is evicted from the surface of his body. Showing skin which has been browned by a dead demonic sun. Gray hair which clearly shows the age of the practitioner, and eyes with normally no pupils. Who's elvin features are rather clear and distinct in the first place, kind of eluding to his demonic heritage in one of the more subtle ways. Which is why he is tended to be thought of as a clear martial artist. Scars from countless fights adorning his back, his arms, and his generally showing for-arms. Despite his very simple shoes black martial art pants. Kept up by a red sash, and topped off by his red fighters top. All of it light weight starkly different then the extremely heavy armor of his shifter appearance. Giving him the more customary appearance which goes along with his davana concept which is bare hand combat.
Clear Speed and Grace: Under all that armor, once removed? Grants blackheart the ability to become clearly quick. As his body is physically fit, from conditioning and training as well as constantly in shifter state super-saturating his body with a constant influx of demonic energies which literally are what keeps the man in the armor alive under all that immense weight. Naturally speaking because of the severe hinderance of that armor, one can only truly begin to understand how Athletically gifted Blackheart truly is only when he takes off his armor. As for example, his body quickly metabolizes energy in his core, balancing it out so that his body is capable of moving quickly, such as making illusions based on a trick of light.Or causing normal or even above par eyes to lag behind comprehending his vision.
Adding onto this, the level of speed he possesses is more focused in close hand combat, rather then moving over long distances. Although based on his foot work and travel speed he is able to move fairly quickly only when its absolutely neccisary. For example, when compared to someone who is truly specialized in speed? He would probably have a hard time keeping up in a straight up foot-race, but take that same person and if he was fighting them with minimal effort for maximal movement? He would more likely have a better chance of dealing with them. In this way he isn't extremely fast, in terms of raw speed, it instead is more of he is quick in his reaction versus movement time, and excels at executing movements in a very small space, rather then conventional speed which is going from point A. To point B. which is why he is like he is.
Aura Veil: Aura Veil is the term that is given to his energy when its no longer super-saturating every iota of his body. Given he naturally does have a massive energy signature which can warp and distort the given world through his demonic heritage. However, what is more perceived as him releasing, is instead the "flux" or the surface of his energy as it becomes able to be applied into things other then just the self preservation of his body. For example, when he is in his shifter state, all that energy is being rapidly metabolized into the muscles, bloodstream, nerves, basically every single bit of his body needs that energy to stay alive, which is true. However without that armor, his energy is free'd up, able to do other things, and it as such tends to spread out, expanding over a highly thin radius I.e the surface of his skin. As the years of having that armor on has left his energy highly condensed. Barely able to leave an inch from his body, all that energy is perceived as a great big veil .
Energy radiates from the body, a condensed form of energy which is the product of wearing that armor for a majority of his 8,000 year life time. Sleeping being the only time he takes it off. The reason of course being that the only time his energy isn't subconsciously being flushed through his system is in his dreams. Going back to the energy's behavior however, it forms a condensed veil which is more the bi-product of his energy having to adapt to keep his body from being ground to dust in his shifter state.
Strength And Body Physique: Size isn't everything, be it muscles or body composition. Given the fact the danava of martial art's body isn't really "Big" muscled, because of the many thousands of years of wearing his armor causing his muscles to condense down rather then to grow out like most individuals I.E a body builder has large muscles rather then small muscles. Although here's the catch, because of his muscles having been condensed over the years, it allows the likes of Blackheart's muscles and skin to act similar to a partial armor. One which is able to stop cutting attacks rather then physical ones. I.E his muscles when condensed turns his skin from a soft substance like gel to something which would be hard like iron, just as an example about how the muscles in the body react when they are tensed rather then how they act when they are lax.
Adding on to this though, the danava of martial arts does have a suprising abundance of strength when just standing still, I.E he could using his strength blow apart a city block from a punch, from just merely strength alone. Since his strength doesn't radiate over a wide radius, but here's the catch, that city block would look like a mere hole in the ground, there wouldn't be cracks and lines, it would be as if the entirety of the city block had been reduced in seconds to a pile of dust and debri which would rain down over the general radius. In this way he isn't overly gifted in strength on his own, because his strength centralizes in a single area rather then like in most cases where it is spread out over a wider radius. I.E this is why in terms of damage radius he sucks, as he uses more centralized force rather then wide radius attacks and damage.
The Martial Arts: After he exits his shifter state, he becomes able to utilize his martial arts.
» True Appearance Picture:
Discipline: BlackHeart in terms of conversing with others, gives off and does hold a strict level of discipline for himself. He normally will remain formal, as seen in his normal mannerisms, slurs come at rare times and that would be in times of great irritation or in times he has been gravely disrespected. Generally he also displays this when he is talking or moving about, he keeps himself at arms length, disconnected but still interactive at the same time. Also he seems to hold himself to fairly high standards in terms of his own actions, such as this shows when he's fighting, he will not pull off his armor and go into his true demon state unless he Absolutely needs too. This isn't because he is arrogant, it is because in his eyes what he has when sealed is plenty for most situations, his job is not to attack or fight it is to protect and keep peace. Which is why his normal form is humble.. and how his discipline also makes it so that.. if someone makes a promise.. he will hold them to it till death. If he makes a promise? He will hold himself to it till death, his word is his honor, but also he represents what he considers the true path of a martial artist. Changing that path. would reflect that he would no longer be worthy of his own davana hood, and if such a case arose? He would undoubtedly without hesitation take his own life. This is also shown because he will almost never take off that weighted armor of his, as that is his training and a part of his own will.
Iron Will: Going along with Blackhearts Discipline, his will is almost never able to be shooken. If he doesn't want to attack, not even a command from his superiors [if he had any] could cause him to betray his own will. He beleives in the individual not races stereotypes or anything like that. His will is reflective of a time where it was the strongest fist won, and honor was something important and crucial for every single individual. Its not that he beleives he is always right either, its that he considers himself a man, and in his eyes a mans will is something that is tied closely with their sense of self. To loose ones way would be undoubtedly a fate worse then death itself. Which is why even though he lived in isolation for so long, he keeps the creed that his will is as his life, steadfast until the end. Not even the threat of death could change his will, he may do terrible things, but he doesn't go back and regret doing them. Instead he sticks by the consequences and will continue down the path or the choice he felt was the right one. Which means that as well his will isn't set in stone in terms of being a single direction. He is known to revise his outlooks , however he will not change his own convictions or his decisions because that is what is wished by another person. His will will stay fast as it is his own, he may choose to shift his veiws, but he will not change them for others. He will change them if he feels enough has been shown to warrent a shift in his opinion.
Determination: He's not "Hot Blooded" most of the time, but he is reliable, Blackheart feels that if he's going to do something he needs to not falter because of some unseen complication. If he feels its the right thing to do? Nothing short of death would stop him from doing it unless he changed his mind on it. This shows alot in his interactions with others, like if someone says that they want to get stronger.. if he felt they where worth the time? If he did and then accepted them? He would be dedicated to making them stronger, he is not the kind of person to merely "Give in" or "Give up" instead he will continue towards the goal which he feels is what needs to be acheived. As seen with his armor, he could take it off and remain in his true form. He could but he doesn't because he has made up his mind that it is in his benifit to remain in his shifter form unless he absolutely needs to move into his true demon form. Its kind of like he feels that he can always do something, and that no matter what happens nothing is over until the last moment has passed. He doesn't beleive in destiny, he beleives that it is the work of the individual that will to persevere which makes things better, not giving up, or hoping that it was destined that on that particular situation they would win. No instead its the work to get there that is important, which is why he has amazing determination.
Knowledge Of [ALMOST] All Martial Arts: BlackHeart being the Danava of Bare Hand Combat possesses extensive knowledge of virtually all forms of hand to hand fighting styles. This is shown because he is rarely suprised outwardly or mentally when fighting other hand to hand opponents. the speed of execution may suprise him, or the quickness but never the technique itself. This is partially because he is the concept of Bare Hand Combat, martial arts the knowledge of these things, everything concerning combat without weapons of any sort he knows of them kind of like how someone who for example was a danava of war can potentially know about whats going on in a battlefield without being in it. BlackHeart possesses that but instead its that he knows when individuals are creating new martial arts, he learns the style and as they are being created. Which is why if the martial art style is older then him he may not know it, or if somehow he overlooks a style he might not know it. Meaning there Are exceptions like everything else, but for the most part being he was created from the strong thoughts of all martial artists from a long time ago? He has had the pleasure of learning and being able to learn styles while they are being created from mundanes, or learn styles if he see's them more then 2 or 3 times.. with some proficiency. Which is how he again in battle displays this personality wise, because in terms of hand to hand combat, again he is rarely suprised.
Reserved: He is a reserved individual, he rarely will scold someone unless they really need it. Because from his own experiences he knows people some times trip their shit and fall. However he himself has shared his own fair amount of there kinds of incidents. As such he feels that he shouldn't judge someone for things he himself has done. However this also shows because even under extreme taunts and harrassment he will rarely raise a single hand in his own defense. He rarely holds real care for his own safety. Making him able to stand in crowds of hostiles and calmly keep them from getting past him, but at the same time? Unlike some people he has the reserved calm nature which will keep him from going out and murdering every single one of the individuals who are trying to egg him into tarnishing his own integrity and honor. Because of this he is known to be highly.. well put together and reasonable in terms of hard situations. He doesn't get flustered easily, and keeps a calm mask of kindness about him which isn't forced. Thats the thing, that mask of kindness is genuine a product of his own long grueling and battle filled life. He learned the hard way, which is why he is able to maintain his feelings and calm nature now.
Self Defense Of Innocence: Maybe it may seem ironic to some, but Blackheart doesn't really feel that it is right to hurt individuals who have no real reason to be harmed. He knows that war is neccisary, but at the same time, to him he doesn't care which side is doing it, or who's side he's helping in one situation. If innocent lives are on the line? Just because of how he behaves and how he is , he will put things aside even stopping his assault on an opponent and going as far to ask them even if its on his own hands and knee's to help him protect the lives which hung in the balance. This is one of the things he does not tolerate, He will give his all in many things, but if its an innocent life? he will not do it, he will instead protect those he can with his own strength. For example, he will not hold any regrets of using his true demon form if it is to protect the lives of those who have no reason to be killed. He can give his all when its fighting for another, and not his own selfish gains. In this way? He is a very humanitaristic person, despite being a demon, just because of his own past he knows the value of lives and the affect of taking them away. Which is why he does his best to prevent lives from being lost when that loss could be avoided.
Chivalry: Friend or Foe, he retains a sense of chivalrey for those who fight. It doesn't matter if the individual is his best friend, or his worst enemy as stated before. He feels that it is right to give respect to those who deserve it for their efforts. As such while he will turn down fights often unless needed? He isn't going to tear down the dreams or aspirations of another. He may spar with them, and he always will aknowledge an opponents strength. Even if he hates their guts, he has the deep rooted emotion from many martial artists over decades and thousands of years. That emotion that someone should be judged not only for their deeds, but for their work ethic and dedication. Someone could be totally bad, but in strictly combat terms, that isn't what matters to him. He's not approving of someone, he is merely giving them the respect they deserve if they have trained hard in a particular feild. Because of this he is peculiar, even if he beats someone into the ground, he may hold out his hand and offer it to them, complimenting their skill and then thanking them for the fight, or telling them if they want to spar again to let him know.. this is just one of those things that is a part of who he is.
Loyalty: It goes without saying, Blackheart isn't quick to betray people, not because he feels indebted to a person. No he isn't bound by merely emotional ties, because he tries to minimize those as much as possible. Instead he judges people on how they work, how they keep their promises, and how they lead their lives. If someone who he's loyal to does somethign bad, but has kept true to themselves? He might not try to do everything to protect them, but he will give a very very hard effort to keep them alive, and see if they change their ways after the event. He isn't one that condones the philosophy of quickly changing sides even if one had a sudden revelation or enlightening. Even if he knows the one he's protection is balls ass backwards in terms how wrong they are? He isn't going to abandon them unless they don't show the intitiative or the will to change. Because he likes to beleive that people can bluntly speaking? Pull their heads from their asses if what they are doing is ruly wrong in some way shape or form. However .. if they fail to show that?..Unless he gave his word not to betray them? He won't attack them, but he wont associate with them either.
Savage: This is rarely seen, because he rarely gets mad. However underneath all of that, the past still prevails. All martial artists can get angry, he is no exception. In terms of how he acts, he stops talking to people in length, keeps his words brisk to the point and blunt. He won't berate and opponent, but if he's fighting someone who envoked his wrath? Who got his blood to boil ? He won't hold back, he will beat them within an inch of their life. This is because, at that point because of the fact.. he is just that understanding. That he would have either felt they did something that they could never atone for, or they would have done something so horrendous.. so just down right degrading/dishonorable that he couldn't stop himself from blowing his top and hunting them down to the ends of the earth. Which is why.. his anger is rare.. but it is lethal.
Maturity: Possibly because of his age, Blackheart possesses a high level of maturity, as shown in how he generally acts and how he generally behaves as he doesn't do the same childish things as most youth, like chasing after, or trying to get even with someone. These things mean very little to him, as he knows that in the expanse of life, even things that felt good at the time? Will eventually either be forgotten, or one will come to regret them entirely. So, he doesn't put to much faith into just how things are. He acts like he feels he should act, giving people the respect due.. but also understanding sometimes things need to be handled with some force.. He just acts with his head rather then his heart.
» Natural Demon Traits:
Zao-Ka Skill Speciality: Gifted with his connection with zao-ka itself? He does have a high affinity for his connection with Zao-Ka. In fact in terms of skills naturally speaking his zao-ka affinity is much higher then any of his other natural skills, due to the fact it does have a key tie-in with his davana hood. Which would be the knowledge of the environment portion of zao-ka. In bare-handed fighting styles, or even bare-hand combat the ability to assess and know the environment is crucial, one of the most important facts actually. Which was why when he was brought up in his davana hood, he already had an unusual connection with the source of demon energy, which would be the core of demon magic (Zao-Ka) This connection even at a young age, allowed the davana of bare-hand combat to learn and utilize some of the more complicated aspects of Zao-ka, at least in terms of environment manipulation and knowledge gathering. Prominently this is literally considered his 6th sense, given the heightened realm in which his Zao-Ka is elevated to in general, especially in information gathering and collection.
In this way, his uncanny knowledge of whats going on around him even with his eyes closed, is due to the immense flood of tangible information on the environment , whats going on , and things like that, which are constantly happening around him in a moment by moment basis. Not exactly noticable unlike other demon skills, the natural demon trait doesn't utilize the normal ability to curse an opponent. As well the rare instance of manipulating the environment is not as heavily utilized either, being it will be rarely seen. The only two things would be the affinity or energy level it grants the user, as well as the knowledge of the environment which is something that is utilized to give him the perfect platform to use his generalized martial arts and bare handed combat skills on. As such his Zao-Ka skill can be disputed in its level of knowledge or skill, given he has the intense heightening of two aspects, while barely touching upon the rest of those skills due to the lack of a reall need or neccesity for them.
Finally though this is why of course the likes of blackheart is known to have such absurd presence in terms of his demonic energy. There is a high quantity of it, which is also controllably compressed as shown in previous sections. Or following sections. This is literally just the tangible reason for how and why it is there. Also though it should be noted that his natural trait, is more so just solely for the zao-ka's heightening of the demon energy, as well as the knowledge of the environment which is granted from it as well. So it is considerably more so just a kind of a focal point which is caused by his whole concept which is bare hand combat. Just like his shifter states armor is enforcing an aspect needed to be good at bare-hand fighting, which is discipline and training, constant training.
» Origin Name:Bare Bones [Nickname is The Hand To Hand God]
» Origin Power:Bare bones, is the power which is used by the davana called blackheart. It is essentially a power which boosts the physical cababilities of the host davana. This includes energy which is used in conjunction with the raw strength of the host. Given he is the concept given life by the strong thoughts of martial arts, fighting without weapons, and essentially in short fighting with nothing but your hands, it means he has a high comprehensive capacity for the arts. As well as being able to understand when martial arts are just created by his extra sensory affinity for these arts. More so then this though the origin power, is based off of the concepts of the arts and in this way it can take traits from things which would be associated with the hand to hand combat.
So in essence the base power works to ascend the body and change it so that the body is augmented to fit a caliber which would be befitting of what is thought as the literal personification of bare hand combat. I.E without his origin power he might be decent, but with his origin power it would boost the skills that relate to bare hand combat, as well as adding some things which would be associated in the arts. I.E see Ki which is something associated with Asian Martial Artists. Or see The Permanent form of the eternal partner which is a reflection partially of the chinese zodiacs, which are associated with a culture which used to be heavily hand to hand combat oriented. Which is why "Bare" Bones is the origin power that embodies the arts, it personifies the key traits of a martial artist, and then it will only personify things relevant to the culture of bare hand combat or bare-hand combat itself.
Also it grants the user an innate understanding of the movements of even martial arts unknown to the davana, I.E he may not know the style or how it is? But give him afew turns and he would be able to figure out how it works, because hand to hand combat, martial arts, and bare handed combat styles are what he personifies, in this way his origin power also gives him this "Extra" Affinity for sensing whats going on.
» Origin Abilities:
Trandescended Sensory Skills: One of the KEY facts in any fighter, but most important in a martial artist or bare handed fighter, Sensory. He carries senses which are not amazing in terms of fighters who are specialized. But his Origin Grants Him what is known as a Trandescended Sensory, which elevates his sense of "Space" a loose term for the ability to conceive fighters and individual's presence even when they Are out of sight in a certain radius. In his case, this translates to a space in which he can sense even the smallest shift of the air, the simplest shift in demeanor, or the electrical pulse sent from someones muscle as it shifts. To sneak past him you have to go beyond making your presence non-existant. You would have to expunge your muscle movements, you would have to move without emotion, without presence, without energy, and without any intent. Meaning there are individuals who can sneak up on him out there, but the chances of sneaking up to him any closer then the 200 foot radius around him would be less then 1%. Not because he has some overpowered sense, its just because all individuals who rely on their skills in hardened battle must be able to display keen detection skills. In his case he is able to use this in terms of its ascended form, sensing opponents and their presence way before they might have been able to sneak up on him. However this isn't a perfect skill, there are things that can be found as "Flaws" from it.
Martial Body: Martial body is simply his body is heightened to the very limits of what it can acheive, which will be explained below in their sub categories. Although what is needed to be known is that Blackhearts body as one would call it is a perfect masterpeice it is the ideal body for a martial artist, given he is the concept of bare-handed combat. His body reflects this perfectly.
Pain Endurance: Pain is something a martial artist is familiar with, because of how the body works martial artists and any individual who uses their bare hands for combat must be able to take pain and be able to withstand the force that they put out themselves. Being he is the danava of bare handed combat? He boasts a resilient pain endurance which allows him to deal with immense levels of pain, to the point that he generally can supress the pain from
Martial Strength: Because of his origin power Blackheart's strength is augmented thanks to his origin power. I.E his force increases dramatically although the radius of his destruction doesn't change, due to him being the davana of bare hand combat, His punches might have enough force to break a mile radius around him when in full force, BECAUSE of the augmentative capabilities of his origin power. I.e he wouldn't be able to use this or amplify his strength to pull off feats of crushing a whole town just from strength alone. Primarily because in bare hand combat it isn't how large a radius that can be destroyed thats important, its how strong the power of the centralized punches can be, as such Blackheart can cause a large amount of damage, however it isn't something that is primarily considered on par with many pure strength users. As its just simply not important to begin with.
Martial Speed: Because of His Origin Power, Blackheart possesses Intense speed as well, allowing him when he's in true demon form to utilize all his movements at high speeds. Flash starts, afterimages, sonic booms, and even momentarily vanishing all together are common when associated with his level of actual speed. Given his speed is not as good as someone who soley focuses in it. However it is very fast, given his execution speed and the need to be quick balanced and light on the feet are all things needed from a martial artist. So if he absolutely needed to moving in one direct direction he could possibly go from russia to chile in around 2 hours. given he can move very very quickly, however he isn't focusing solely on speed. It instead is that his speed is focused to the level it needs to be at for him to utilize his fighting skills and combat effectively.
Internal Demonic Ki: Ki is something talked about by some martial artists. There is external Ki and internal Ki. Being he is the davana of bare hand combat? Blackheart has the origin ability to manipulate his internal Ki allowing his body to be impervious to most things like poisons, toxins and even other abilities meant to harm the body. His reselience is something that pretty much is because of the fact that his internal Ki is equivalent to his tier, being his energy is flowing through his body, channeled into his attacks and utilized properly. This ki, travels through his bloodstream and through the cells in his body, regulating and regenerating his body as it is attacked. However this Ki also can work in many ways.. using certain methods he is able to bend the energy and lifeforce within his body to fit his needs. Below are the basic ways it can be used, which is known as the Oriental Dragon vein.
Note: [ Each Ki can only be used by itself , and if one Ki Style is Invoked he cannot just switch to another in the same turn, He can switch between Ki's three times without cool down before he will need to wait 2 turns between the types of ki he uses for 5 different Ki transitions. Note, 5 turns in one Ki style causes fatigue [non posted time limit ki's ] if the limit or duration of use is posted in the Ki type, then thats the duration it can be used for. ]
Warding: The most basic thing that can be done with the Oriental Dragon vein is warding. His Ki or internal energy which is converted over from zao ka moves through his muscles and is intuned with his sensory skills. As to be a martial artist.. this method which was adopted by him after the chinese began to really study martial arts. He directs his chi into sensing the location of attacks, not detecting the opponents location but instead reading the opponents movements, such as minute muscle movements, he uses this to gain a almost 6th sense of precognition, allowing for him to quickly be able to sometimes avoid attacks, and it will boost his blocking rate and accuracy by 150% what it normally would be considered at. Among other things warding is able to give his fists an edge which is like a katana forged for spiritual damage. Notable because his fists gain an almost dark crimson aura about them, which signifies that he is able to amplify his martial arts and utilize them to alter and even destroy spiritual obstructions depending on if there is a similarity in tier.
Fortification: Using Ki as a literal armor, this method of the oriental dragon works in the concept many boxers and other fighters have factored in when trying to harden their bodies and minds. This directs the Ki inwards radiating out from the abdominal area, running through the skin and bones as well as the sensitive parts of the body. After doing this the body will begin to harden, muscles will retain elasticity however his defense will double for the duration that he's using his ki in this fashion. In example doing this can be shown because his skin will turn a gray color instead of the normal pale white. This is due to the oxidation of the blood in his body as it's condensed down and partially expended outwards. As such his body literally is comparable to a hard weapon or shell when the fortification method is being used. This is because the fortification method is again directing the ki into a defensive stance, protecting the body and then using it to extend this method.
Adrenaline Surge: Just like the name suggests, Ki is expanded rapidly in one big surge through the users system. this energy will cause the body to go into overdrive as if in a life or death situation. Using this method of ki will cause the user to tire quickly but in the duration of use it is perfect for quick combat styles given the user will as a result of the adrenaline acheive a higher level of strength and speed then what would be normal. As one would expect this will also cause the users perception rate to increase just like the other factors are increasing. In this way normally attacks that would be too fast for the user to comprehend would become visible, and vice versa, already visible attacks would more likely then not seem like they where moving in slow motion. This method has a time limit however due to the over-exhertion of energy and ki which causes the body to become rapidly tired and for stamina reserves to deplete if used more then 4 turns in a row without any cool down. Making this one of the more precarious Oriental dragon ki's to use.
Burst Healing:Ki is expended in a short burst which lasts about a turn. In this way it allows for the body to rapidly regenerate, Ki is greatly reduced using this method, due to the way it will drain the reserves meaning that while the entire body can be essentially healed , it can't be used every single moment, instead it takes time, and by time that means that it can only be used 4 times a thread. Other then that, his body cannot heal at the rate of normal demons. This is because the oriental dragon vein's diversity and his skill set conflict with healing and other things which are similar in nature to it. In short, this means that while he can completely heal himself it cannot be used more then 4 times in a thread, and thats because if used over that it will cause the reserves of Ki to run out.
Strike Points: In combat Ki can also be expended if needed within punches to greatly increase the strength in which they will hit. For example by doing this a single punch will have the strength of 5 punches of the same type. However this isn't one that can be used many times, instead it can only be used by a punch by punch basis and he can only pull off about 10 of these punches in a thread using the Strike points in conjunction with his ki. Due to the fact that the strain on the body is essentially unimaginable in terms of forcing the Ki through that single focal point and then allowing it to push into the opponent.
Striking Palm: Striking palm as the name suggests, is one of the collective moves he has learned. It works by tightening the fingers in and then striking briskly against the opponent in time with a quick twist of the body. Doing this type of strike leads to blunt force exhertion and is able to for example send a fist sized chunk of rock flying at sonic speeds in a single direction.
Iron Palm: Ki is focused, exherting energy and force in conjunction with one another, the velocity and blood which rushes to the surface all combine to form a palm which is like a suit of armor, the strike is devastating, being able to if used at full force it can break through even steel walls, and cause buildings to collapse. The specialty of it is not in the energy , but the hardness and how it is focused on the striking point, allowing for the exherted force to be utilized in immense proportions. It is usually accompanied by a sonic boom due to the impact speed exceeding the speed of sound. Which will deal further concussive damage.
Dragon Strike: The Arm is timed with the body stepping in at rapid rates of speed, muscles tense on the moment of impact allowing for the speed and force to increase air tension causes the illusion of heat and flame around the strike itself, the fist will heat up due to friction for a short moment on impact. Not causing burning damage but instead a hyper focused impact, which holds the force needed to knock over a building if exicuted properly. and that is without the speed or force of the individual applied to it. Which is why this strike cannot be used as often, as the tell tale injury from rapid use of it? That would be burn marks on the hands.
Double Bone: Double bone is a variation of the shinigami hand to hand technique, instead the practitioner brings one palm and one fist forward striking the opponent and causing both crushing, and sharp impact damage at the same time. In blackhearts hands it is very much so possible that this move could cause anywhere from light damage to severe damage.
Triple Bone: Like double bone? This is a procession of three quick rapid strikes which are done in a very short period of time, in fact to normal eyes this technique looks like only a single punch. However, instead of that it is multiple punches which are going to happen at once. which causes the damage to be done to be actually 3x as much as if it was merely a single punch. This is done by rapidly expanding the muscles then contracting them on the moment of impact. Making this punch fairly dangerous due to the fact it executes attacks of extreme speed in a very short period of time.
Quadra Bone: Quadra bone utilizes the same process, but instead of using it to strike in the same spot, this punch can be used to in a span of time that is near instantaneous? For four strikes to be delivered from bare fists either in the same direction, or four different directions. Because of this, it makes it so that this is highly useful for striking or fighting multiple opponents at the same time. It builds on the same concept however that triple bone and double bone use, by rapidly tensing and untensing the muscles.
Penta Bone: This is dubbed the lance or penetrator. Given this fist when used is essentially allowing for five consecutive punches to be done at near instantaneous speeds, meaning that even though it looks like it is just a single strike? In actuality it would be the equivalent of five strikes pummeling the same point all at once. As such the purpose of this fist is more to break through defenses. the problem though is that if it is used over and over, it causes the hand to deteriorate. I.E if used over 2 times in a row? It will cause for the hand to essentially break the knuckles grinding to dust from the force which is going to be exherted consistantly in that short period of time.
Sexta Bone: this punch is slightly different then Penta Bone, given it uses six punches which all hit at the same time nearly because this technique which can only be used.. once every 5 turns? Speeds up the punch to the point that being hit by it will cause 6 hyper sonic explosions which will all blend together into one strike which is capable of shattering the ground and blowing down tree's with ease. For this reason this punch is rarely used and it is particularly risky as if used more then once in 5 turns or 4 times a thread? The muscles in the arm of use and the body's muscles will begin to break down, rendering them immobile for 3 turns following that.
Meteor Impact: Meteor impact is a punch which uses every single ounce of the users strength, but combines it with the complete rotation of the body. This causes for the force to be amplified. In this way this punch as the name suggests can be used to generate crates equivalent to those from meteors. The force and power though make it so that it can only be used twice a thread. Due to the fact that the strain on the muscles and the force that it puts on the skeletal frame of the body is immense in its own respect. Also Because of this? This punch is rarely ever seen from blackheart, essentially meaning he doesn't use it if he can help it.
Art Of 1000 Hands: Known as the art of 1000 hands, this style utilizes knowledge from defensive hand to hand combat styles over the expanse of blackhearts long life. Condensing them down? This style though taxing has gained the interesting perk of being able to rapidly execute strikes from rediculous angles. Relying on both control of ones mind, but also timing, pivoting and even things like speed and accuracy to a point. Given the objective of this "Fighting Style" is not to overwhelm the opponent, or to defend from the opponent. It is instead crafted with a medium of both in mind, the concept of it is to be able to strike freely while keeping ones feet light, and then dealing quick but still harsh damage. This style is most notable for its ability to spin from the rear or front pivot foot, with dancing movements allowing for the practitioner to strike virtually any angle given they have the time to process, and the speed to move into position and then granted they have the time to attack afterwards. This is the real secret , position, timing, striking, and recovery. Deploying these things while remaining conscious of his surroundings and opponents. That is the real strength of the style which lets movement run predominant. The reason it is called the art of 1000 hands, is that while moving, or in high speed / caliber combat with another skilled individual? The illusion of thousands of punches executed in very breif periods of time are perceived as all existing breifly at the same time.
This is why the quick movement, accuracy and then knowledge of that movement, executed quickly while continuing to move allows this art to gain the edge of being able to both balance attack with defense. And retain a kind of mobility which will make it harder to bombard the practitioner with a single area type attack. The only downside is that this style works on revolutions, spinning and rapid footwork which can be its own downfall if an attack is miss-timed or not perceived in time. In these cases a practitioner who tries to over-steer metaphorically speaking, to compensate will cause injury to himself, as well as it will break the style, generally causing a user even a skilled one to fall over Unable to really recover for a good 2-3 turns due to both whip-lash, and also due to actually the way the eyes and the senses jumble up once the style becomes unbalanced, leading to severe dehabilitating migraines, and other similar situations which is one of the things that makes this style.. and its side affects particularly severe.
Art Of Whirlwinds: This style is one focusing on speed, and reaction as well as the ability to quickly change directions, attack and then continue to change directions yet again. This is where the misconception that gives the style its name comes from. By moving and avoiding then rebounding in short intervals of time, the styles quick almost gliding movements cause winds to whip around the practitioner , leading to the force of the winds to continuously build if moving over a prolonged period of time. Generating small whirl-wind like air-currents as a bi-product. That is the nature and the reason why this style was called by Blackheart the "Art Of Whirlwinds". Also as the style's execution suggests, it is a high speed combat variant of martial arts, which he made by putting together again various fighting styles over the course of his life. Though unlike the previous style, this is all in the reaction time, speed and ability to weave dodge and in short. MOVE. while attacking, using it may cause the practitioner to assume the visual appearance of a ghost of the wind. But its not without a good price to pay. Given the high demand for energy and the force put into the style causes it to be taxing and a fighting type which cannot be prolonged over a duration greater than 5 turns. However, this does mean that in those 6 turns the users speed will have the illusion of increasing drastically, since the speed burst is in essence.. similar to a all out sprint , it is going at full throttle for that whole period of time.
Because of this, the style has some flaws, such as it won't work on individuals who are used to the rate of speed the practitioner travels at, as well it won't particularly work on someone who can disrupt or trip up the practitioner. Given in this situation it causes as one might think, for the one using this style to flip off at high speeds, and more likely then not? They would probably hurt themselves to the point that it wouldn't be suprising if bones got broken or even if bones got shattered in over 1000 different tiny peices within the body if the impact of them landing was entirely bore on that single point of the body. I.E if they landed on only their shoulder? all that force would probably grind the shoulder itself to a mound of dust inside of the body. Or it could cause possible death for normal individuals because it could cause the entire torso to dislodge, if nothing more then because of the speed that the user would have impacted the ground at.
Art Of Kicks: As the name suggests, this is the art of rapidly executing kicks while staying mobile. Combining various methods of kicking, the outcome is that this style utilizes rotating on an axis, or even jumping into the air and on occasion utilizing the hands while executing powerful kick combinations in a very very breif period of time. The key being of course the adaptability and sense of both direction, and depth perception, along with reaction time and flexibility. Given this style demands that the individual is able to both execute and at the same time, adapt to blocking and avoiding without the benifit of having ones feet to help with the evading. Meaning in terms of using it, the entirety of the style focuses on mobility in the upper body. As all methods of evasion either use jumping, quick contact of the feet, or the users hands since their feet are the primary method of attacking. Of course the main downside is that after 4-5 turns the upper body becomes tired and an individual needs to rest.

» Conceptual World: The concept of Blackhearts Inner world is based on the concept of old martial arts, its an endless stone floor which seems to stretch on for miles. This white tile seems to be highly impervious to most types of damage, on top of having a subtle pressure about it which makes the inner world a challenge to move about in.
» Rilīja Attributes:
» Eternal Partner Name: Berserker
» Eternal Partner Appearance:
» Eternal Partner Personality:
Feral: Berserker is feral by every meaning of the word, He doesn't take to the normal mannerisms of human being in terms of how he acts and why he acts like that. for example he doesn't really see the reason that individuals hold respect for others. Instead in his feral aspects the mannerism of fight or flight is widely predominant in terms of the way the beast reacts and how the beast itself will answer in combat. For example, Berserker is more likely to try to eat someone in one great big gulp then he would be to try to reason with them. In this way berserker is known to have a voracious sense of self preservation and an Alpha Complex to go with it. In all mannerisms for example, the actions the way it speaks.. it is very much the text book definition of a plain old wild animal. Which is why berserker in itself doesn't tend to talk much.
Ancient Intellect: Given the host itself is easily 8,000 years old, it is easy to understand that the beast known as berserker doesn't act without prude thought to his actions. Despite the flare and the annoyance in interacting with others, This ancient beast is cunning, and shrewd. Easily able to outsmart the run of the mill opponent by using intellect and knowledge either shared between him and the host, or from his own long amount of time on the world itself. So the beast itself acts very much so with a eerie sense of maturity. A dry arid amusement which stems from the age and just from how over the ages the beast has gotten an unique "Flavor" for the world itself, and how he veiws it. So he doesn't get suprised easily to say the least.
Beast Vitality: Like a beast Berserker's animal blood runs white hot like an open flame. It is easy to see because the ability to shrug off damage or get up due to nothing but the need to survive , these animal instincts show very easily in the ancient tiger/dragon. So in most of the ways the old beast acts, its easy to see the primal edge to it. How the beast itself acts in even interacting with the host is another factor to take in to consideration, as the beast itself doesn't particularly like to be bothered even on the best of days. Although also the beast is always up for a fight, in this way this is actually probably the real reason that the eternal partner got the name berserker in the first place. As it acts very much so like a wild animal in name and in reality.
Warrior Code: The beast known as berserker doesn't have many things that he beleives strongly in. Despite being a wild animal though, the beast does believe in some things such as a code of strict honor which should be extended to others in the midst of battle. Despite however this code of honor being horribly distorted by the wicked based on the fact this is a animal that loves to rip and rend things limb from limb. As such he has very few things that he beleives in .. but there is indeed a few.
Never Give In: Never giving in is one of the things that the eternal partner known as berserker actually apriciates. The beast beleives in that simple concept of "Survival of the fittest" Or "Kill or be Killed" which is actually because the beast itself is unruly in nature and doesn't beleive in letting a foe with their back turned survive to tell about it. This merciless code means that if a foe falters it will very quickly piss off the animal, which in the end makes it so that like an animal, if someone caves or shows weakness? This eternal partner would be MORE then happy to sink its fangs into that persons neck.
Strength: The animal Berserker doesn't accept anything other then strength, if someone wants to be respected he beleives that they must have the power to earn that respect with their own two hands. If they dont? He doesn't really feel that there is a reason to particularly give them that respect. As such this is the other thing that the Berserker Values, strength is something that is aknowledged in what he beleives to be a rapidly softening world.
» Eternal Partner Powers:
Dragon Form: By itself, the eternal partners power is actually stuck between two forms, the first of course being his dragon form. A form which takes on the form and characteristics of a literal dragon, given this "Form" is related to the later developement and manifestation of the zodiac signs in chinese culture. Essentially meaning the eternal partners first ability ties and changes related on this culture. So in all real way shapes and forms? This is literally a concept based just on that fact itself, retaining the key parts of a dragon without over-powering it. While not being an actual fullfledged dragon? He has some traits which are like a dragons which will be explained below.
Dragon Roar: Berserker has the vocal strength of a dragon, being able to release startling sonic soundwaves from his vocal chords which are easily able to break apart buildings and shatter windows outright. Because of this though the fact is that? This isn't a real ability. Instead it is part of the characteristics of a dragon which is retained through the dragon form. Of course though, due to the davana being "Bare Hand Combat" the eternal Partner is based on physical power. So the dragon roar doesn't have any spiritual tricks to it, which would make it supernaturally formidable. It is merely the manifestation of raw lung strength through the mouth of a great big beast. In such a manner this "Roar" is able to even generate shockwave like waves which can break the ground and even knock over plants, and bushes if the likes of berserker is angry enough.
More so then this, the introduction of the power of berserkers voice is because he is known to use this vocal instrument to literally cause damage to the environment. Lacking flames of a real dragon, his voice is akin to a dragons breath, being focused to the point that it is just as damaging as a sea of flames on the environment. For a very specific reason, Which is his Roar is comprised of conflicting soundwaves, both slow waves which cause damage and higher waves which are too high for the human ear to catch. To the trained ear, the roar would sound like a musical hell hole, or a clusterfuck, as the single roar which blends into something that is barely perceived as sound at all? Is actually going to sound like thousands of clashing voices which are all fighting for predominance at once.
As such the voice itself doesn't have one tone to begin with, but as well all these conflicting soundwaves crash against eachother after hitting an object, causing multiple vibration frequencies and force to all converge and compound into a single blast. This of course leads to damage which could be anywhere from city blocks, to possibly even at max a mile or two. The only real problem with that of course being that, when using it in wider range damage I.E a half mile or greater? It causes bleeding in the voice box, leading to after several uses on that scale or larger? for the voice of the dragon to become unusuable for the remainder of the thread because of the fact if used over that the damage inflicted would be permenant rather then just some slight "Temporary" damage that would be able to heal in a moderate period of time. As such the voice of a dragon is strong in this case, but with that strength comes the price that if not used with thought in mind? The skill can be lost with something as simple as one careless mistake.. such as if the dragon was to roar on a large scale a 8th time? He wouldn't be able to roar ever again. Thats the price of his vocal prowess.
Dragon Strength: Berserks Dragon form has comparable strength to his hulking size. As the eternal partner is more then capable of taking out even entire cities if his strength is used in combination with speed and weight. Although note that he would have to try extremely hard to put up that level of destruction even if in a short period of time. This of course is due to the eternal partners embodiiment of physical strength and what not. However it should be noted that this strength is more then just "Physical" strength, it lays in how the muscles and size are stacked together, as such his strength is comparable in essence to his size, meaning he isn't "Immensley ungodly powerful" however in terms of power, it would be equivalent to someone who is strong to begin with, but instead of them being the size of a human? Imagine that person being the size of a 200 foot tall dragon, who's around 300feet in length. It isn't the fact that he is only strong. The eternal partner is also huge, which is the main reason for all the strength itself in the first place.
Beyond this his strength trandescends logic, not being able to affect spiritual attacks outright? But still being able to do things like brake barriers, after a few hits if someone's on the same tier. Only because of the fact of his immense size, and strength being combined together to allow for the individual to be decently powerful. Now.. for an example the dragon itself has enough strength to break sizable holes in mountains when it uses its strength in full. Not precisely being able to destroy things outright, but being enough to even with the thick bones of a dragon and the size and predictability? That it can cause lasting damage to the body itself, such as if this strenght is over used I.E using enough power to break cities over a 3 turn period constantly? It will cause the muscles to rip themselves apart and movement speed, and what not to be reduced for the rest of the thread by 20% because of the need to let the muscles rest.
Flight: Simply put Berserker has the ability of flight, given on his back is two giant wings that when used simply put do allow him to fly. In terms of flight he is faster in the air then he is on the ground, being able to move at fairly quick speeds rather then his sluggish pace on the ground.
Dragon Hide: The hide of a dragon is thick, because of what berserker is it allows for the beast to have a hide which is highly resistance against flames and other physical attacks or even spiritual attacks. The individual themselves in terms of raw power is able to withstand tactical strikes and nuclear explosions with minimal damage. However.. there is a catch, because of the dragons massive size, weight and strength he isn't really able to move fast. In this way the hide itself is something that turns the dragon on land atleast into something fairly akin to a turtle if it comes to just running around and avoiding. So again.. to make up for this as most dragons do, berserker has harsh armor which is both rigid and covered by an immensley thick layer of spiritual defense which allows him to be more of an offensive tank then anything else. Although it should be noted that while powerful the armor itself or hide he possesses is weak towards blunt force damage as well as cold temperatures. These things cause a cooling on the molten exterior of the dragons hide, leading to damage being dealt as well as in some cases causing scales to fall off which will further cause chinks in the armor.
Logically as well with armor that is as thick and strong as a dragons hide, there is clear chinks or weak spots, such as the horns on a dragons head, while strong are weaker then the scales on his body, the same of course being with the dragons armpits, and then the eyes as well are fairly vulnerable if you can hit just below the eye socket.This is of course because of the need for movement, without these more flexible parts the body itself wouldn't be able to move. Meaning that there are weakened spots in the dragons defenses, in return for the immense defenses granted to the rest of the body, which is of course an equivalent trade since this is added on to the weakness of blunt force damage and chilling cold based damage. As these two things are the opposite of this particular dragon, as berserker is known to be immune to flames and heat based attacks, but because of this is incredibly weak to cold-based attacks as he doesn't have a balanced defense between hot and cold .
An example of this would be, take a fire user and an ice user? The fire user even if of a higher tier.. [1 tier higher] would find flames would barely or not affect the likes of berserkers hide due to the intricate ingrained defense against fire that he possesses. Now on the flipside, take the second part of it which would be the ice users attack, instead of being immensley defensive against it, ice attacks and cold based attacks would be much more affective being 150% more affective towards the dragons hide then a mere "Fire Affinity" Attack would be. Because of this the dragons hide is a bad match up against water or ice elemental based users. Given the fact that from the get go berserker will be at a pretty big disadvantage due to the way his armor is comprised and how it generally is made to affect and deal with attacks in general. The same with a hand to hand user, given the armors made to protect against energy, fire, and weapons? Someone using a sword would have a much harder time then someone using their bare fists. Infact bare handed attacks will see a 130% increase making berserker a horrible match up against physical combat types as well.
Finally though berserkers armor while strong causes him to be unable to really utilize his strength to the fullest, given that the cumbersome dragon is unable to fully fly for long distances or move at speeds which would be above the range of adept because of all the weight which is leadening the beast down. So this is also a problem, making the eternal partner also a very bad match up against speed users, as he is unable to keep up with these types of people in the first place so all in all there are benifits to the armor but there is also downsides to it as well. Meaning that berserker's strength is countered by his severely bad match up with certain opponents, making his armor strong.. but also in itself a large disadvantage he has to deal with in battle.
Tiger Form: Speed grace and power, are all things which are what are thought of with the tiger. Unlike the dragon form when he uses this chinese zodiac form? he tends to take on a more compact big cat appearance. Being only a beast of a 5 foot tall and 10 foot long stature, the more size friendly beast is not near as heavy as the dragon counterpart. This is mainly because the tiger, is an animal of speed , power, and ferocity. Not commonly associated with being slow, cumbersome and clumbsy like a dragon may be. Because of this fact, berserkers Tiger form while it doesn't pack the raw straight out power and resistances of the dragon form, does retain superior speed, and ferocity as well as quicker reaction times to the dragon form by far. See.. while this embodiement of physical strength does primarily have itself shown in the dragon from, this form is for high speed.. and force based fighting styles. Also it should be noted, that unlike dragon form berserker if he uses or changes into this form commits to it for the rest of a battle. This is because the Tiger form is also more specialized and requires more adjustments to go into. Meaning that while in a fight Berserker can shift from his dragon form to his tiger form, he can't shift from his tiger form to his dragon form.
Ferocity: In tiger form berserkers ferocity or animal edge is amplified severly because it is matching the instincts and characteristics that a tiger would possess. In this way attacks become more violent,instead of using subtly or subterfuge the tiger is more adept at going in and dealing massive amounts of damage in a short period of time, which is primarily why this "Trait" is summed up in abrupt damage, instead of like the dragon who's damage is slow and timed. More force and more killing intent is naturally being put behind attacks, in a way which causes most attacks from tiger form to be made with the intent to kill. This however.. isn't perhaps a physical augmentation it is a product of a psychological shift in the likes of berserker himself as when switching into his tiger form his mind and body fits the role of a territorial tiger which will fiercly fight and defend what it perceives as being important.
For example those who the host consideres as allies? These individuals would be considered at things to be protected by berserker in tiger form. In these situations he would do everything in his power to protect, and defend these individuals. Going as far as being hellbent on killing the other person if need be. as this is just simply how the tiger behaves. Meaning naturally the tiger still would be berserker, but it would be comparable to another war-like version of him, which would slightly be more inclined to attack and destroy rather then it would be to defend and try to make things easier.Literally this ferocity translates to the tiger form being highly agressive rather then just slightly agressive. Ending up meaning that while most forms are just the physical aspect, the mental aspect in this one is factored in as well.
Meaning that also because of the animal instinct the practitioner or berserker will become less reserved in attacks, sometimes leading to hasty decisions that normally wouldn't be made otherwise. Because of this fact? It is really easy to see that the tiger form has draw-backs even psychologically because of the way it pumps up the testosterone and generates this "Tiger-Like" persona.
Speed: Speed is increased vastly due to the feral nature of a tiger which is also a fairly fast animal. This "Speed" however is translated differently as a tigers speed is not just raw "Speed" there are factors involved that allow this big cat to be something that is both lethal and fierce. So speed in this case is more so an accumulation of things rather then something that could be written off as "Just by sheer force" or "Just by sheer speed" as in this case a tigers speed isn't solely based on a specialized factor such as most individuals who are speed based fighters would consider themselves to be. Primarily because of this the tiger forms speed is the acumulation of four factors which heavily affect the functions of berserkers movements when in this form.
Accelerating: Accelerating is one of the crucial factors in the augmentation of berserkers physical speed in this state. As using the power of a tigers back-legs, it allows for the eternal partner to rapily accelerate in a very very breif period of time. Doing such means of course that unlike most individuals the speed reached allows for quick stop and start motions. For example in acceleration terms in tiger form it is quite possible to from a standing start to accelerate within moments past the speed of sound, meaning of course that this kind of acceleration can be sensed through disturbances in the air, or even the sounds it generates in the form of dull booms from when the eternal partner is accelerting or de-accelerating below or above the speed of sound. In full though, the acceleration is just one of the varied factors which allows for this to be so formidable.
For example, while accelerating is fast , this has nothing to do with sustainable speed, it just means that the tiger form is very capable at reaching high speeds in a very short period of time. Now, maintaining that speed is another factor that has nothing to do with how fast someones acceleration is. In this way of course it means that while the tiger form possesses great acceleration this isn't all the speed itself consists of, instead it is one of the underlying factors which it is a part of the tiger forms formidable speed and grace. It just isn't the entirety of it. As acceleration is like a glass cannon, its powerful but very frail by itself.
Reaction Time: Reaction time is another key factor of the level of speed the tiger form can reach. Given that it doesn't matter how fast an individual can go if they cannot keep up with the speed of their own movements. In this sense the animal instincts of the tiger grants a superior ability to perceive things in a very short period of time. Essentially tying in to how the eyes perceive things, and how the body reacts, by linking these and speeding them up by pumping spiritual energy in them it allows for the individual to reach heightened levels of perception, I.E being able to see things which move faster then the users actual base speed to a point. Although this perk has nothing to do with speed itself it has a fairly good reason to it. Which is because reaction time is important to speed in the sense of being able to react to your own motions.
Because of the reaction time it becomes possible to do minute adjustments while moving, such as shifting the direction that one is moving to avoid coliding with something or getting hit. These things become crucial when trying to maintain speed. So because of the way that the tiger forms speed is structured this is something that is a key point in the real success of how quickly the tiger moves, as hitting things does slow down the speed an individual is traveling by far.
Traction: Because of the claws that a tiger possesses? This tiger form has superior traction which allows the motion and acceleration that berserker is able to acheive in this form to its maximum potential. Simply put, this is acheived because with better traction the individual becomes able to go at faster speeds with minimal energy being expended. I.E this is why if a car spins out they are unable to move, because they are unable to grip the object they are moving on. The tiger form using the claws makes it so essentially this "Key Point" is one of the things which is enabling or greatly improving the success rate of Berserkers speed.
Agility: Being agile is also important, in tiger form this means that beyond just reaction speed, berserker is very flexible and nimble, being able to contort and move his body at high speed in ways that makes it so that he becomes more affective at landing, avoiding, and even moving at high speeds in general. Why this is important though is fairly simple, even if someone has traction, acceleration and reaction time, if their body isn't versatile enough to move as needed, all the things the individual does have becomes pointless and then there lacks a reason to be used.
Power: Another thing is that berserkers tiger form is also useful in the sense while not powerful like the dragon form, the tiger form is strong in its own right. This of course is because of the trait of the eternal partner as well as the fact that a tiger itself even in the wild naturally is a very strong animal. Due to the fact it is a big cat and needs this strength to bring down even stronger predators. So even though this is a form taking on the affinity of a tiger? The strength there is not forgotten, instead it is personified as one of the key augmentations that is found in the big cat's form. As such this strength is something that does pack a punch, but isn't quite as powerful as individually as the dragon form. This is due to not only weight, but the fact that the dragon forms strength and this ones strength is built differently from the get go.
As the tiger's strength is not the only thing it relies on, as such the structure of the muscles, even the way that the strength is used, is interchangable as speed is also a factor. So essentially this is saying that the way muscles are used and how they generate strength isn't in short going to be as spectacular. The other thing however being that also while it isn't near as powerful, there isn't a chance to hurt ones self in this form either.
Striking Force: Using the wide stocky and sturdy build of a tigers skeletal structure it allows for damage and strength to be spread out and amplified over the surface of the body on contact. In such a way that similar to how when a tiger swipes at something, there is jaw crushing strength behind it? That principle is factored in as the strength is spread out if in the paws over the entire surface of the paw, meaning that centrifical force will also be involved, and in the end result will end up massively increasing how the body is able to deal out and at the same time, how its able to create force on the striking points. However this is only just a main factor of how "Striking" force is generally speaking factored in. For example if in this form berserker was to run into something using his head, the force of his body would be transfered through and then focused on the point of contact, which can in some cases deal some pretty devestating damage.
The other difference of course being that the striking points power doesn't come from just the lower body, because a tiger is a four legged animal it becomes apparent in feats like swipes. As where a two legged fighter uses the feet hips, and force of the arm? In the case of the animal form of the tiger it would be similar to having three legs and the entire body behind each and every strike meaning that the transfered strength and power is logically going to be much greater then that of if it was being swung from a human given the explosive power and the difference in the center of gravity.
Muscle Mass: Another key factor would be the mass of a tigers muscles, as humans are muscled differently so that they can be able to move on just two legs. This actually causes an individual to become much weaker in the long run. Now in berserkers tiger modes case? Because the muscles are coiled and built for the whole body to move as one unit it means that the force isn't going to be just from the upperbody and then the lower body, the force is directly from every muscle in the body working in a single defined strike, in example when i tiger swipes it may be only using one paw, but if they moved forward before-hand you have the hind muscles, the central muscles, the shoulder muscles, you essentially have every muscle in the body moving and working together to make that strike happen, instead of just pivot muscles and arm muscles.
This also means that because the body is secured on four legs, its able to put on a greater amount of muscle specifically for moving around in general, this change in how muscles are used generates very powerful shoulder muscles and leg muscles as well as power muscles along the back and even the lower body, as a tiger has to move holding all that weight it has constantly. As such every single muscle is in constant use, which leads to attacks, motions, and even when a tiger or berserker in this case tenses his muscles and braces himself? It means that all these muscles are working at once to do so, which is how berserkers tiger form is so powerful, it isn't just using some muscles it is using every single muscle besides the ones in the head to generate the force which is being exherted.
Weight: A slight factor to the strength is weight, as berserker is still a fairly heavy individual even for a tiger. Due to this weight it means ontop of the brute strength, there is the weight and the velocity of that weight to be factored in. So in short this means of course that like most big animals, the weight which is a part of the force of a swipe or attack can be also accounted for. In example weight generally attributes to either [like in humans] fat, or muscle mass [like in animals]. In this case the tiger form has very little body fat, and has an extreme amount of muscularly attributed weight. In example a normal tiger weighs roughly a ton or more, in this case berserkers tiger form probably weighs around 2 tons in weight, muscle weight.
Also this weight should be brought into consideration because it means that the force behind the strikes in terms of moving kinetic force is greater than what a mere human or normal individuals would be just essentially because of the fact there is all this force that is involved. In this way weight is one of the four crucial factors for how strong the tiger form is.
Size: Size is the final factor, because of the tigers 5 foot tall shoulder height and 10 foot length? it means that all that size would be considered as muscle, bones and organs. Essentially meaning that the tiger will have more muscles then say a normal fighter would. So the level of power that it would be physically at? Would be for its size not for essentially a generic term. Which is what in short allows finally for the tiger form to have so much power to begin with.
» Atma Vatou Name: Eternity Release
» Atma Vatou Appearance: This Atma Vatou was created after 2 thousand years of constant conflict with his inner spirit. Because of this the atma Vatou is based on personifying the beast within, So in this case the atma vatou brings out a portion of Berserkers power capping his energy based on the tier of the host.
» Atma Vatou Abilities:
Eternal Skills: This atma vatou's main ability is linked to the construction of it to begin with, being an atma vatou based on conjuring up the beast or his eternal partner? It allows for the direct use of the partners abilities for example, if conjured in tiger form, the eternal partner when brought out would be able to use the abilities which are associated with the tiger form. Instead of this though, if conjured in the dragon form, it would be able to use its dragon form skills. In this way the eternal partners skills are usable when its brought into the material world.
Restriction: Unlike when ones body is taken over? This atma vatou takes the place of the rest of his atma vatou's. In result the potency of bringing ones eternal partner out to fight at their side, has the adverse restrictions which are solely based on the fact that the power of the eternal partner would be similar to the davana itself. So because of this the restrictions put in place on the likes of the eternal partner are neccisary to allow the eternal partner to even be summoned in the first place. As without these restrictions the summoning of the Atma Vatou would be way to costly or "Straining" to even be used as it is similar to conjuring and manifesting a part of yourself to fight, such as making clones. Or demonic summonings. Which is why the restrictions are broke up and very specific and will be explained below.
Tier Restriction: When summoned the atma vatou has a tier-based limit, as it is conjuring the eternal partner puts a restriction on the tier, removing any released forms for the duration of the release. As such if the host was for example 0-4 , then the eternal partner summoned via the Atma Vatou would only be at max a tier of 0-5- or 1-1+ due to the energy it takes to summon the eternal partner being the energy that comprises the gap between the tier of the davana and the atma vatou. As such it isn't comparable to summoning something of equal strength, instead it is more like a clone, by bringing it out, the eternal partners total power will extremely drop depending on how it is done. As such this is something that is put in place to make the summoning even possible, as transferring something to the material world in this case takes quite abit of energy. Not only that though the tier is restricted for many other reasons as well, such as that in doing this, it is momentarily seperating the eternal partner from the davana, making both singular beings for the few turns of summoning.
Contract Of The Zodiac: This is the most important part of the way that the summoning occurs, this contract is one that was forged between berserker and blackheart. A peculiar one which allows for granted only in dire situations the davana to materialize the eternal partner to fight along side him for a set number of turns. This means though that in the phase or duration of summoning, the dragon force ability cannot be used as well as the eternal partners abilities are unusable by the davana, and vice versa the eternal partner cannot make use of the skills of the davana due to the forced materialization splitting their connection temporarily per the agreement of the contract, leading to a weakening of the eternal partner as well as the weakening of the energy reserves of blackheart by up to 20% I.E he drops a tier to summon the atma vatou due to the sheer energy needed to even summon it.
Further because of this, both individuals are at risk, given they are two halves to a whole? If one was destroyed then the other would feel the damage and literally this would cause possibly a rejection between both halves, killing them both if one was killed. Another example is if the eternal partner was injured upon returning to the body then the damage would be transferred to Blackheart himself making it so that he would have to fight and move with that damage itself. Instead of it just going away. Hence why this is a risky contract, if nothing more but because of the fact it means both eternal partner and Davana are extremely vulnerable to taking severe amounts of damage if they are both fighting out on the physical world.
Also because of this, eternal partner and davana cannot stray greater then a mile distance from each other, as while sustaining the materialization of the eternal partner, if that distance is exceeded the eternal partner will immediately de-materialize causing major damage to the davana because of it being a forced return rather then a planned return. as such this also means that one must be able to focus on the distance between eternal partner and davana to make sure that even just by mistake that damage isn't being dealt in a large scale because of some careless action or movement. Meaning that of course? This is one of the major reasons this atma Vatou is rarely seen.
Conditionalized Use: The finally peice of the puzzle? Is that this is something that has a conditionalized use, it cannot just be "Used" on a whim. as the severity of the summon means it must be restricted and monitored to keep it from causing lasting damage to the link between eternal partner and davana. So it is something that is only seen in a few situations. Three in fact as the restrictions that both agreed on in making the contract to summon the atma vatou are no tolerance, so unless something serious happens that hits one of these criteria there will be no way that this ability will even be seen period.
Last Resort: if there is no other option, then this will be usable, by that it has to be of the same severity that it takes tier 4 adrenaline to activate [see post below] but on top of that it has to be after every single other option has been exhausted, meaning this isn't something that is used lightly. To push this atma vatou out would be comparable to pushing someones trump-card out. As such the criteria's name is literally how severe it has to be, it would have to be undesputably a "Last resort" for this to be utilized. If it isn't even if its considered to be by the davana, the atma vatou rather will not summon, even if the davana uses all its might to try summoning it. [this has to be discussed with a moderator before summoning] If it is a last resort, then the atma vatou will be summoned.
Forced+Event: If somehow in an event situation blackheart was pushed to the point he couldn't even keep fighting otherwise, then this would be the only exception to Last resort, allowing for the atma vatou to be forced in its summoning until the situation stabilizes. After which of course the atma vatou would be dismissed due to the strain that it takes of even summoning such an atma vatou in the first place. Meaning of course that this means that he has to be pushed to the point that he does it instinctually rather then doing so willingly like he would do for last resort. Making this also a VERY hard thing to cause to happen.
Take Over: This is the rarest one of all, because this would mean somehow the eternal partner had broken the contract of neutrality between Davana and Eternal Partner that berserker and blackheart possess. In this case the release of the atma vatou would happen causing the davana to pass out due to fatigue. In such cases the atma vatou will hold the full tier of the eternal partner, at the cost of putting the davana into a comatose like state until the atma vatou was forced to return to the inner world.

|Subject Post 3Subject: Re: Blackheart Gremory: The davana of Bare Hand Combat [APPROVED, 0-3+] Sat Oct 25, 2014 3:40 pm|| |
Artist: N/A - Song: N/A - Word Count: N/A
[b]» Eternal Partner Powers: Dragon Force: Dragon force is the ability to attack in a humanoid form with the strength of dragons. Given the base of the eternal partner's true form is indeed that of a dragon, or a tiger, it becomes apparent that this "Technique" is the manifestation of those traits on the host at any given time. In doing so this "Ability" foritifies the body, and strengthens the senses allowing for the true nature of "Dragon Force" to be brought to light. Some call it an ancient incantation. Others figure it to be black magic. However this is a minor equivalency to how most davana have to release to merge with their eternal partner. However in The case of BlackHeart and Berserker, no such ascention of power is needed, because of the fact "Dragon" force was tied in to the ancient zodiac signs, first given thought and birthed by the chinese. So this oriental vein is directly linked to the concept of martial arts, allowing for it to be used by the davana of bare-hand fighting at any time, given the right incantation is given. In fact, this ability is an equivalency to a released state. Given the likes of Berserker and Blackheart are unable to do a canon released version of their powers the traditional way. So in this way the "Dragon Force" would be equivalent to the secondary release of any normal danava and should be treated as such.
Incantation: "A dragon's Fangs rend, a dragon's breath destroys, a dragons power dominates, a dragons force is absolute. Burn the Warrior Spirit, Dragon Force Activate. "
Appearance: The appearance of Blackheart and berserker doesn't change perhaps, instead his eyes which are white and his body has no changes at all, remarkably speaking the change is seen in the aura. His skin becoming hard like scales, these things are what become apparent with the Dragon force release, allowing for the transferrence of a dragons power, into the martial arts of the user.
Personality: Given the personality of both Blackheart and Berserker Merge in this form, it is comparable to a linking and unity of psyche's as both are inhabitants of the same body, this formidable awakening is when turmoil and strife is terminated, allowing for the true unified embodied nature of both their persona's to actually be brought to light. Which is why there is a canon reason for the personality shift found in this released state.
Shark Toothed Humor: In the merged dragon force state, the savage personality of Berserker clashes with the conservative nature of Blackheart, this generates the shark toothed humor of Dragon Force mode, where there isn't perhaps the savagery which you would find with berserker, but it is far less tame then what blackheart is considered to be. as such in the midst of battle this alternate unified persona seems to be known more for the quick witted but also brutal and twisted humor that it seems to possess. Not to be confused with a kind of "Sadism" because the being here isn't precisely sadistic in any way, its just rather he finds humor in destruction but also at the same time, shows his disapproval in his humor making it widely up for debate wether of not he actually finds someone to be amusing or just down right is pissed at them from doing something that they wheren't supposed to do in the first place.
For this reason, his humor tends to give off the common vibe of anger or insanity, confusing people normally and causing the misconception that he is this kind of "War-Like" being which loves to destroy everything and anything. This is widely inaccurate however given the fact that his humor is twisted due to the unified or "Balance" between the two personalities, it has no real ties to his own Views, or even a need to destroy things. Such as some times something like saying "..So.. how would you look without your head" may be humorous to him, or he might giggle like a child at some big explosion. However this is just humor, he may find something amusing, but there is a general difference between him finding something "Amusing" and him actually thinking it would be "Acceptable" to act as such. For this reason his Humor can be widely miss-understood for some kind of war-hunger or thirst for destruction.
Primal Instinct: The dragon force personality tends to have a primal edge to it, adding to the contained ferality of it. Such as his actions especially in combat at times, will have an animalistic or "Primal" edge to them. In some cases in both his actions speaking and how he deals with things, his personality shows a unconcious side of him which is directly linked to that more feral side that lays dormant within. Which is why spooking or coming up without making clear notice of it beforehand in this form generally is frowned upon, given the fact that he has been known to attack or move quickly to defend himself based on slight undermining primal urges. So in some ways he is both a civil individual and a wild animal depending on the situation due to these underlying emotions which lay dormant inside of him. Thankfully because of this it also means that he can understand things from a war-like perspective as well.. for example.
The urge to live, or the need to get revenge, he understands these things well due to the animal kinship he feels for brothers or people he cares about. So because of this when he's in someone elses shoes, he's not going to perhaps "Blame" someone for feeling these urges. Also this means he can understand individuals who have more of a wild edge, such as possibly war like beings which want to just fight and destroy. He also understands the alpha and beta veiws on things from this Primal instinct of his, because he at times has over the course of a long life experienced both of these things. So because of this on both tokens its like two sides of the same coin, being the balance of two psyche's he understands it.. but he also knows that sometimes it isn't right.
Humanitarian: Despite the wild edge to this beast, he retains the humanitarian side, he doesn't feel that innocent individuals should be involved in the midst of a fight. Instead he will protect those who have done no wrong with the limits of his powers. Because of the fact that if you attack those who don't deserve it you are no better then those who are doing needless destruction. To protect those who aren't responsible who are victims, that in his mind is one of the most important things. Preserving the integrity of his warrior spirit , and because he feels it is what is needed to atone for all of his own past crimes. These things themselves all have been put together to make it fairly clear that his stance on attacking others is that.. if they haven't attacked first.. there is no real reason to attack. It's just not right to do so. So with this in mind? He will do everything in his power to stop individuals who don't deserve to be attacked from being attacked.
Dragon Force Abilities:
Combined Aura: The only dragon force ability thats a real ability? Would be combined aura, combining the unity of the eternal partner and the actual host into one body, psyche and physical strengths over lap and merge into a single being. This allows for the immense augmentation in the body comparable to how a offense physical type zan would augment an individuals powers to an even higher plane of combat. The thought process is the same here, allowing for the power to be greatly boosted. Though note , because of what it does, this is a similar process to how most davana release, but instead of becoming more like the danava's trait or class? What it does instead is more like merging two halves together, I.E like Starrk's ressurrecion. So this means that physical strength, and energy rises when in this state, not making it over powered but comparable to what most would consider truly monsterous. This does however also allow for the increased force of most Hand to hand combat moves, I.E because the combined aura increases three things, Adrenaline, Reflex, and Durabilty. It doesn't inhance physical parts of the body like speed or strength, because these things are not needed to be boosted, instead it brings the body's potential out.
The only real problem with this of course is that when the energy signatures and the body converges it does so at the risk of overwhelming and causing extreme fatigue. I.E he would need to sleep multiple days in RL time to actually be at a efficient energy level to awake and move even with a slight accuracy of his movements or techniques. This is of course because in the duration of the merged state? Energy, is both much more potent, and used at a higher rate then the body is used to breaking it down. As such? He can stay in this state as long as he needs, but the longer he is in it the greater the risk of his energy being entirely depleted for a duration of time. Because of this there is a factor that this form's time-limit is more implied, based on his energy reserves going into it, and then its also based on how much energy he musters up when in the state. I.E his energy is doubled due to the energy of his eternal partner being added into the mix, however his energy consumption rate is what balances this out by devouring twice as much energy as before due to the strengthening of the body.
Further then this, the secondary problems with the unification is that if there is disruption on a mental level in some way shape or form, it can cause the form to either be dispelled or for it to go into a berserker state, in which friend and foe is widely disregarded in terms of relevancy. This is of course because to even enter this form it requires a high sense of comradship between the eternal partner and the danava, as well as of course a calm sense of self which can be put together. As such it is crucial that both halves of the psyche are on the exact same page. Since like any multi being form? Arguments can happen within the inner ranks of davana and eternal partner. Meaning that of course this can stop the being from moving as if arguing does happen the body will not function properly due to the internal struggle for control widely overwhelming the external movements. Meaning in short? If there is internal strife between halves, the whole of the body shuts down till the strife itself is resolved.
Finally, it should be noted that because of both their natures and how they interact, there is a subconscious "Dam" in the mind which means this cannot be activated near civilization. This also means that restrictions of the form itself become apparent in densly populated area's unless there is a gurantee that nothing is going to end up killing people who are not involved in the first place. I.E if in a city unless there's a 100% gurantee that nothing he does will kill the people in the city, this form is locked out due to the strength of the hosts will not to kill innocence. So of course this final part of his nature is the other restriction on the base form in its generality. However due to also the nature the way in which the key area's of Adrenaline, Reflex, and Durability are augmented are different than conventional and have their own draw-backs as well.
Adrenaline: Adrenaline is boosted in the form of acceleration. Matching excitement and energy levels depending on the amount of stress the individual feels. I.E if they are being pushed hard, this adrenaline will allow strength and reaction time to theoretically shoot up phenominally over the duration of time that he is in a "Pinch" situation. As such this isn't something that heightens things indefinitively, and it is more so in the time frame when he is about to die, or is needing that extra push. I.E times of great excitement, stress or even anger may trip this dormant part of the ability his release gives him. As in martial arts adrenaline can be something that greatly helps a martial artist in terms of sucess and in terms of combat ability. As the quicker a threat is perceived the more time is present to then look at the threat, and counter it appropriately. That concept essentially is working here , since the thing is the eternal partner and the host davana are both PHYSICAL beings.. because both are in token aspects of bare hand fighting, fighting without weapons. All the perks gained are augmentative or in the realm of physical improvement.
Despite though the fact adrenaline allows for super-human feets, this adrenaline itself allows for energy to become unstable as a trade off the more excited or the more adrenaline is pumping through the veins of blackheart in dragon force state. Locked in "Tiers" there is the difference of severity and how strong the adrenalines affects are which should be taken into consideration. I.E 25% would be tier one, and energy control would only be slightly affected, and something like 75% or tier 3 would possible have Immense de-stabilization of the energy levels of the user, to the point it could be possible that he would have no ability to use supernatural skills which are racial or special to the user themselves. More like a berserker if anythin else.
The affects over extended durations become increasingly shorter in terms of draw-backs from the adrenaline surge as well the greater the adrenalines severity is. Because adrenaline puts the body in over-drive pushing past the limits for the duration allowing for the greater strength that was needed to be acheived. Which is why while the tiers have their own perks and grades of boost? The affects and length of time it can be acheived is both shorter and coupled with affects or drawbacks which are more severe the higher the intensity of the adrenaline is. Which is why below tiers 1-4 will be explained and the severity of the Draw-backs as well as the boosts will be explained in full.
Tier 1 [25%]: Tier one in adrenaline is comparable with mild excitement or mildly being backed into a corner. The affects are very slight, allowing essentially increases in speed and strength which would be on the 5% margin, as well as increased perception times up to a 10% increase margin. Given the fact this is more like when ur blood is pumping and all those endorphins are going to your brain to boost your stamina and allow you to push through that pain. This is a good analogy for this. It doesn't force it, but it doesn't at the same time have as much of an impact in battle, given the strength speed and perception are only "Slightly" Boosted rather than being majorly boosted. So in this way the adrenaline itself can be used for a decent amount of time or over a longer duration without as much of a consequence. I.E this can be used over 20 posts without any complications, however over-exhertion or passing that mark would cause the body to fatigue and along with speed and stats weakning by 10% for 4 turns? The host would need to wait 1 turn before they would be rested enough to continue fighting.
Tier 2 [50%]: Tier two is comparable to moderate need or excitement, when the blood is really racing? Or when its beginning to become crunch time, it will allow the strength, speed and perception of the host to increase by 20% in each respective field. This of course means that while there is a more noticable increase in the boost it also means that fatigue comes quicker. With harsher drawbacks because this again overworks the body, causing its potential to be momentarily pushed past its limits. Because of this the stage of adrenaline can only be used for around 11 turns instead of 20 turns. And when the limit has been pushed beyond then the host will only be able to use up to 80% of their full power for 5 turns after a 2 turn rest to recover from the demands of the adrenaline itself.
Tier 3 [75%]: Around this time.. energy will become uncontrollable and he will loose the ability to use his racial spiritual abilities in return for the 50% boost in strength, speed, and perception. Because of this though energy becomes consumed at rapid rates leading to the longevity of the ability itself being cut down by half. Beyond this there is also the fact that because there is so much adrenaline coursing through his body? This will cause more then mere fatigue, it causes muscle damage, literally it will take more then a few turns to recover, in fact it will take the rest of the thread for the hosts muscles to actually repair to the point that he will be able to fully use them for short periods of time. Essentially though this also means that the life-time of the adrenaline's use is shortened drastically, being only usable for around 5 turns before a 3 turn rest is needed and only 70% of their full potential can be used for the rest of the thread. So this means that tier 3 has some pretty severe draw-backs to it.
Tier 4 [100%]: Energy becomes rapidly unstable, actually flooding out like a volatile tide which will batter the surrounding landscape. This state of adrenaline only activates when the host is on the very door-step of death. Causing immense increases in energy, speed, strength and perception time, it could be considerable to a psuedo final release. As for two turns all physical attributes are increased by 200% and his energy is all but tripled in this duration. The only catch being of course after those two turns the body will go into deep hybernation for 2 weeks in real life time after that due to the IMMENSE muscular damage, fatigue, energy depletion. All of these things coming in at once cause the drain that can be seen after exiting this adrenaline state. Given this is only used when there is NO other option. As the price for gaining this immense god-like boost is comparable to the boost it gives. Which is why the recovery time is so long, it should also be noted this is something that directly affects the life force of the body, putting it into over-drive as well by using a surge of both physical, spiritual and life energies to rapidly rejuvinate and push the body to a new level. So this removes any time limits, literally putting the user in a powerful stage, but making it so after two turns, if they haven't wrapped up they will be as good as dead.
As such punching, kicking and other powers become incomparable, the body will even change hues from a normal tan to a pitch black aura which will rapidly expand from the veins and cells in the body, causing literally for the exterior to become a case of volatile energies, while are comparable to the supernova of a dying star. Not in power, but in the way that all of his energy is rapidly being expended so that the body has that change of surviving. As such this is something that shouldn't either be taken lightly, but also if in a fight should be considered only a last ditch effort for situations which he has no other option other then to be pushed into this state, as going into this state puts him in a half-dead like state for 2 weeks real life time to heal to begin with. Hence why tier four itself is never seen unless that sort of situation arises.
Durability: "A dragons Scales are their pride and joy" This is an accurate analogy for dragon force, in turn for removing the ability to rapidly regenerate? It makes it so that the body's durability itself increases massives in a short period of time, given each scale is compounded based on the force of a dragons power, as such it must be able to withstand that power as well. As such the strength of it is balanced on a spiritual and physical level, being able to take a pounding for example something like a nuclear war-head would deter it, but would only cause something akin to a slight burning of the skin which tends to take a more reptilian stance about it. However these scales aren't meant for pure defense, as bruising and damage is still occuring through the scales. Infact in terms of pure defense? Unless its either fire based or cutting based, the defenses will not absorb any more then 15% of the damage taken, being he himself is a physical fighter this "Augmentation" is oritented around making it fair for him in the midst of battle, not defending against every single type of attack known to man.
In this way the main focus isn't defending or even making things fair, the armor itself is specifically unified with his own shifting energy signature, making it so that when he's using extreme force, or his martial arts moves, it doesn't damage the body from the backlash or the intensity of his own hand to hand combat techniques. Meaning this isn't an armor to protect himself from others, instead the armors main trait is to allow him to simply not hurt himself when he's fighting due to the base augmentations that are present in the dragon force state. For example, if someone punched him? The damage would go through just fine, the only thing that it guards from, is four things, A: damage he'd normally inflict on himself from using a technique, B: Spiritual energy damage [to a degree due to his physical fighter build] C: Blade Damage [Cutting damage again due to his own hand to hand build] And D: Combustion/Heat based damage [As they are dragon scales]. These things are diminished so that if using a blade or spiritual energy, you will find that it is hard to harm him, if on the same tier, he can take major pummelings from these fields because of the fact his body is oriented to block from non physical combat.
Flames however or heat related things are the thing that is reduced the most, given this is a dragonic defense given to him by the merging between him and his eternal partner? It means that of course, these things are things he is near -Impervious too, as to damage him with flames or things related with heat, is highly unlikely. I.E he could be possibly damaged by the concussive force of a nuclear strike, but the heat is something that would barely damage him at all. In this way of course the flames are the least likely way of getting through the defenses just based on the fact that again it is a dragonic based physical defense.
Now, Hand to hand combat however is a really quick way to harm him, as his body is not defended as openly against open punches, fists and other kinds of physical contact. I.E if someone cut him, the armor would compensate, however if someone punches him then his body isn't going to guard it with that extra layer of armor. In this way his armor is built so that its not highly defensable against everything. So, essentially speaking the defenses are built high in the other fields because it holds no defense against the field of physical combat, because of the fact that this armor isn't made to stop a hand to hand fight, its meant to make it fair for him when fighting others who actually do use weapons.
Reflex: Reflex is boosted by the same token as durability is. It works by boosting the reponse time of the user so that he is able to react quickly to attacks. I.E because of this his speed may not be on par with someone , but he may still be able to track their motions and compensate because of his ability to perceive actually what they are doing in the first place. However the fact is because the fact it increases reflex, it also makes it so that the first two turns? The user becomes widely disoriented and it takes time to adjust to the increase. I.E the user will need to thrash around abit before his mind is able to keep up with the sensory overload that his reflex's would be giving him at that point, so in this way the reflex increase causes massive migraines in the beginning, and take time to fully adjust to in the long run.

The Killer Without Weapons:
Some things.. such as weapons hadn't been used in full .. instead hand to hand fighting was the main force which was used. These skills.. they where constantly perfected, among even races which where spiritual hand to hand had always been a means of fighting which was practiced seriously. From the thoughts.. from the world.. from martial artists and their immense will to figure out how to be the perfect martial artist.. is what eventually in a remote corner of the demon world gave birth under the dead burnt out sun in the sub-pocket of the demon outlands, to a new individual. An individual who's very existance was based on the way of the fist, which had been the tool in which he had been conceived by. The new-Born who's body was the size of a full grown man had been assaulted in his first moments by the trembling pressure of the information which came from every martial artist of the time.. the knowledge of hand to hand combat.. the discipline, every bit of it had been thrust into his mind. Such was the magnitude of the information that it drove the young demon to the brink of insanity, where he was forced to bend over on his hands and knee's while a demon had come across the lad. A cannibalistic demon which sparked off the beginning of what would end up being an intense blood bath. That demon had walked up ..trying to figure out what had been wrong. it even had asked..
"..Oi whats Wro-.. huh?" in concern.. but having snuck up on the new demon? The unstable demon who had no name had jerked his arm out in speeds that had been clear and slow to him, but like lightning to the other, punching a hole through the demon with enough force to generate a shockwave inside the demons body, which then had blown up. The intense need to protect ones self, coupled with the magnitude of his instability had pretty much left the rest of the males mind blank. Instead of stopping the davana had spun on instinct eyes dead as a doornail while his foot drove into the side of the flying head sending it hurling into the sky. Blood splattering over the bronzed skin of his body, his eyes shifting as he used what seemed to be a 6th sense of the location around him.. to move to the side, bursting up and forward, a trail of dust following him while his palm was flat and moving forward striking another demon on the side of the jaw.. causing the head to spin around and snap leaving the demon slouched on the ground while he had walked forward, his arms shaking as he was trying to deal with all the force.. all that force.
The insanity in his mind on that day of his conception many years ago had been great his sense of self was forced to the back burner, and he sat there within the low burning red light, blood covering his body as he looked from his left hand to his right hand. This was.. something which indicated he didn't know what had transpired.. but he also didn't have the mental sanity left to let the realization sink in. Instead.. he had grasped his sides and shook there, trembling while he brought his forhead against the ground repeatedly, his mind lost as the demons freinds had come over the encroaching bank. His mind.. and body reacting as he had smashed into them as well, killing them ripping them limb from limb, while he couldn't help but forcibly try to keep himself under check.. the information that still flooded in causing him to feel both fear.. and the inability to control himself. But he didn't feel remorse.. instead he had on that day kept moving forward, injuries sliding on his body.. pain shooting through him. Though his fists didn't dull. No instead.. the war he fought was one that was hard.. to even understand even as a new davana.. the war was something that was.. truly.. immense.
The Eradicators War: Some time later.. that day.
"..Did you indeed kill every one of those demons? ANSWER cretin" bellowed a man..a large demon who was adorned with many skulls.. who had come to the sight.. of seeing his advisors slaughtered beaten and humiliated while a simple brown skinned demon sat there.. obviously covered in blood banging his head on the ground. In response.. his veins bulged and on his roar he had called the demons , he had been considered a diety.. like figure.. but that was because his own domain was one of the many pocket dimensions in the demon world's outlands. Which had been why, at the beck and call of the master of the domain demons had appeared from every crevice.. rising up and appearing in numbers that far out-weighed millions.. Instead the sky and the land was covered in a thick sea of demon. Which was why as the Leading Demon had looked forward.. grinning he had been sure in his numbers.. and jerked his hand down, causing each demon to charge.. a battle cry expanding out of the populace of demons, which had all converged on the lone davana who had been lost smashing his head on the ground.. but then.. as they charged something happened the demon began moving. "...Cretin... worms.. dare call me that name".. The words had been soft but, as they where uttered Blackheart had spun bringing his right foot up smashing into the chin of a demon, left leg then jerking from the ground rotating around that leg smashing into another demon. He didn't react on thoughts.. instead as he landed his hands jerking palming a demon, punching anothers skull in, as he'd hook his hand around the demons neck throwing the demon into other brethren of its? Black heart hadn't.. even been thinking.
His feet seemed to shift, leaning criss crossing, dancing as he kept weaving through crowds, his quick movements smashing demons in the face.. while then after taking out a vast majority.. he would have been punched hard in the gut sending him flying backwards into the ground which would crater as hundreds of demons jumped on his body all at once, their mouths working as blood leaked on the ground. Everything seemed like it was over as the mass didn't move for abit and then thefake diety demon would grin..
"..This is what you get for apposing me.. cry in despair as you go into hell.. " The demon who was in charged said grinning as he had seen that the demons had been doing their work. but then his eyes widened."..My god.."
The lump of demons began to move, as blood sprayed everywhere, flying from the demons, crashing as the bodies began being shot from the pile up at random, each one having holes or bones sticking out of odd angles. The likes of Blackheart standing up albiet covered in many wounds, unable to even look the leader in the eye while he had felt the closeness of death, his mouth parting.. as there was a voice in his head. He didn't know but he was regaining his senses, war had seemed to be the antidote to the madness which was riding his brain like a bad hang-over. So as blackheart had jerked forward his speed increased.. his strength increased, his movements becoming like lightning. In fact as he zigged through the crowd, he'd keep switching from foot work to hand stands, alternating between his feet and his fists. Smashing into and crushing demons on the fly. For every 4 that wounded him, he killed around another thousand more. The pain was immense and he couldn't even stop and take a rest.. If he rested he knew.. somehow from the information he had.. from his davana hood that he would be killed.
As he moved dodging those claws, blades, beams and outstretched embraces of the angel known as death, he couldn't hesitate he didn't think about how much something hurt. All he did was dodged, even as he ducked and got cut badly in the shoulder, or even when he had to flip land foot first on a blade and kick a demons head off? This notion which was a part of his knowledge as a martial artist was what allowed him to keep going which was why as sweat dripped down his face he had slid under another demon his fist jerking forward smashing into the demons stomach sending him down on on his knee's while his legs jerked up clamping the demons neck then snapping it. His eyes widening though as he felt a demon grasp his legs looking up to see the likes of that stupid demonic fake deity's grin as the demon had thrown blackheart up into the air, where he flipped end over end and then crashed into the ground. His eyes narrowing while he spat up blood, forcing himself to roll to the side, narrowly missing a demons pounce, rolling and springing off his back then punching that demon in the head killing it while he had ducked down under another demons lunge, smashing his fist into that demon in an upper-cut sending them flipping end over end.
His gaze only then narrowed again, his body jerking forward as he had brought his fist into the likes of more demons, continuing this until there where only two demons left, even though one was covered in blood, aka blackheart.. and the other was that immensley powerful lord of the pocket-dimension, a forgotten warrior or king of some location. Although as black heart looked up he would have spat blood to the side.. and exhaled.
-Survival Of The Fittest: Blue is the NPC, Gray is blackheart.
"..You did well, but now your here.. fighting me.. and yet.. " The leader of the sub dimension had begun to say, his eyes narrowing looking at the stranger.. who was weak and who was injured bleeding intensly.. and even who's energy seemed to be sub-par at best.. It was laughable to the demon lord.. or self proclaimed demon lord that this individual thought he could survive killing his men.. or challenging him. In his mind? There was honestly no need for two alpha individuals, instead it was time to end this farce before things got out of hand.. and? With that in mind the old demon had raised his hand up, bringing into existance a huge battle axe, made of blood energy, and what looked like the bones of his older victims who he fought to gain such a power in the first place. It gave off a deathly glow while the lords eyes narrowed.. a grin on his face.. and he couldn't help but think "..Its but.. a little fledgling.. he was strong but now he's injured.. this should be easy.. ill add him to my collection!" The demon thought as he would have jerked his axe down springing forward, quite lithe for his age and bulk the demon lord quickly had appeared above his prey which was obviously the likes of the poor indiviual newcomer demon.
Without waiting he'd bellow out as his hands jerked down the weapon of war a deep wicked toothy grin on his face. "..YOU ARE TOO WEAK TO CONTINUE" and then looked down with the intention of cutting the other demons head off, some drool coming from his lips as he was hungry.. but he also was enjoying this, showing his superiority over other demons was something that was all in a days work. It wasn't that he felt that it was nice to pick on the weak. instead he loved to see despair and know he was the strongest. He felt he was the strongest man out there.. although this was because he didn't know he was in a pocket dimension. But for this reason the demon allowed his huge war-axe to come in for a killing blow, his feet pounding into the ground, his eyes narrowing into pin-pricks . Although like any seasoned warrior.. he was ready to dodge, to counter at a moments notice.. which was shown as he already was moving with his swing, making it so he could avoid at a seconds notice.
All in all, the demon was confident this wouldn't be much trouble.. the opponent was scrawny.. a green horn and already injured and tired from fighting every last demon he had in the domain.. Even though he knew it was a heavy price.. he felt that it was needed. Fighting wasn't about strength or power.. it was intimidation, numbers and strategy.The one who used his head was the one who won. The demon had proven this philosophy many times.. and he was about to prove it again, which was why he licked his lips.. prepared for a new feast.
"..You have no Honor" Blackheart had said, his mouth parting as blood ran from his arms, his dead legs getting a surge of energy, which he had thought was beyond him. Instead of being cleaved in two? The young davana's fist had jerked forward smashing into the side of the weapon allowing it to be knocked to the side, off balancing the other demon, his fist jerking forward and his body sliding under the weapons reach aiming to smash his fist into the demons mid section, and end this with one blow. He already knew by the injuries.. and how his body was like lead.. this wouldn't be long.. Instead.. he would have pushed himself.. using his new found power.. to try to push past the barrier of pain which he was being swamped by. His fist making a short.. compound uppercut, while he felt the bruising on his soft flesh of his knuckles from hitting the weapon. Yet.. his siteless eyes had narrowed.. the seas of white focusing on the supposed lord, wanting nothing more then to bring that fist into his face and break him. But still.. the young davana knew he was at a disadvantage.
Which was why as his body shifted he would have punched hard and then skid around crisscrossing, then dismounting in a flip and landing some several yards back, the ground cracking below his feet while he slid his legs wide apart, hands dropping into a fighting stance. Though he didn't even know where the knowledge for these stances where coming from, his long black hair covered in sweat, his fists tightening till some blood came from his palms. He couldn't help but give a slight young arrogant ass grin to the older demon now, his body trembling but still he held the illusion that nothing was happening.. He kept telling himself that he wasn't in pain.. there was also this voice in the back of his head telling him that if he kept going things would end up working out. Though.. he still had no clue in hell where this voice was coming from either. The only thing he could do was cautiously wait.. his muscles clenching and unclenching to re-establish circulation. thoughts racing through his mind his head, as he was trying to figure out how not to die after coming so long.. and all he had come up with? Was a lunge using his force in a suddent spurt to run towards the apparent demon deity. his Fist jerking forward with enough force to break the sound barrier.
Adrenaline was his friend. he could see everything.. and wondered dismaly if everything looked so clear before or not. That if this was only a sign that he was going to end up dying pre-maturely.. Or maybe that this was a sign that things wouldn't end with his life being gone. He didn't know but he continued moving forward until he was in the range of the demon lord, his fist jerking up and he was focused in nothing more then socking the demon lord beating him to a pulp that was his desire.. which was why he endured all the pain and forced himself on further. Forcing himself to fight with the tenacity to keep going, to keep moving and to keep fighting. He had these strange.. feelings that this demon.. was not worth letting live.. that some feeling in his chest had caused his blood to boil.. and he got the message.. take this bitch down. That was the message. So as his heart kept pounding.. he got up close in personal.
"..Wait.. how is he still What!?!?!" The demon lord had said, his eyes narrowing into pinpricks as he had looked down, seeing the other demon having avoided and knocked his weapon to the side, which had smashed into the ground, his gaze shifting and moving up as he then using his rippling muscles pulled the blade from the ground seeing the other demon who had retreated.. his mouth spitting up some blood from the force of the punch he had been hit with. Then his eyes narrowed, seeing that smug grin.. that smirk had made him angry for some reason.. he just wanted to kill this kid before things got any worse.. Which was why then as he brought his axe horizontally across he had released a huge plume of energy in the form of gale force winds which would expand outwards the raw energy destroying the ground in a mile radius around at least, His grin sickening and wide as he watched and hoped that he had killed the little idiot.
"..HAHAHA.. you JUST RAN INTO YOUR OWN DEATH.." The lord said as he began cackling and snickering his body shifting down as he had already put his axe up now, his eyes shifting around to see just how long it would take for him to fix the mess that he had just created. . .He felt he had just finished the fight.. no being had survived that before.. not even in his old days which had been when there had been opposition in the sub dimension he lived in. He had quickly crushed any of that kind of resistance.. leading to his long 4,000 year rule to the current date. Which was why he just let ego role out.. a deep smirk and chuckle leaving his lips as the tornado expanded exploding like an energy bomb, cratering the mile radius it had hit. His own feet skidding back as he would have whistled.. and thought.. something like.. "..That takes care of that.. good riddance.." Only after that had he turned his back and began to walk off towards the town he had built deep in the sub-dimension.
"..Serves him right.. trying to fight me.. a lord.. someone who rules everything that he see's.. [in the pocket dimension] his mouth parting as he kept laughing his body bending back as his hands had wrapped around his stomach, that manic laughter being of a man who thought he had just won.. or rather felt the battle was over.. and again he had proven that he was the strongest. That anyone else.. was just inferior and needed to be treated like mongrels.. Yet.. there was still an uneasy feeling in his gut that made him stop laughing.. his eyes.. shifting at the ground as he slowly said.. [i]"Maybe im getting too old for this.. i should retire" Leaving his back wide open.
"..Damn- shit what is this force" Blackheart said as he had skidded backwards.. his eyes watering as he then had begun to zig zag, the wind smashing into him causing bruise after bruise.. which hurt like hell.. but he still didn't really understand himself he just felt that he needed to keep going, that if he didn't he would loose some part of himself.. or betray something about himself. Hence why though as he pushed into the storm he would have skidded and then launched off his rear foot bursting through the storm ,his hand clenching and jerking forward as he had closed the gap the explosion burning the back of his foot. His veins where bulging as he couldn't even contain the anger he felt.. nor did he even know anger was something that felt like this.. Instead?.. Heh had just roared, his fist jerking into the middle of the demon lords back, his eyes narrowing as he stamped his rear foot on the ground adding force as he jerked his whole torso into it.
".Fly you mother fucker" was what he would say, black hearts eyes narrowing even more as he grinned in pure manic rage, his fist connecting solidily hopefully, as he continued to hold his ground, his body quivering before he had then lowered his hands onto his knee's fighting to keep himself standing, a deep exhale leaving his mouth.. while he spat up more blood.. which would have hit the ground as the area his foot had landed on? Well it had broken apart, clearly showing the amount of force which had been behind that single foot. But it was also apparent.. as blackheart cursed mentally trying to keep himself on the conscious side of things. A deep grunting sound leaving his lips while he hadn't even given much thought to what was going on in his muscles or how torn up they where.. Instead? He was listening to that psychotic voice in the back of his head which had gotten stronger.. which goaded him to keep himself upright keep himself fighting, the urge to just splay himself out on the ground.
Although .. he did hope that the punch had killed the demon lord.. if it even hit because.. he felt that his body was very close to its limits.. He didn't like the fact.. but it was true.. he could feel it in his bones.. he could feel the tired leaden feeling of his bones as he fought to keep himself standing.. and it was nothing more then his own pure will.. probably which had been keeping himself standing upright at this point.. He'd exhale.. once more.. and spit up more blood, and then he'd sprint forward if the punch had landed, ready to bring in more punches, to damage the individual as fast as he could before things where going to go south. That was what he wanted to do.. which is why he picked up speed, ignoring the ripping sound in his legs as he did so, kicking from the ground straight into the air, left fist jerking back as his gritted teeth had blood running down them some.
"..FUCKING DIE" was what the enraged blackheart bellowed his fist jerking down if the enemy had been sent flying, smashing it directly into the sorry bastards face, his foot following afterwards with an overhead axe kick, his feet jerking in time hopefully getting out another 50 kicks of crater inducing force before his hands clamped together and he'd slam his interlinked fists down on the center of the demons gut. causing a shockwave which would kick up the dust in the ground, and cause if all hit, for the demon to SMASH into the ground with enough force to create a huge few mile wide crater. while he'd let out a deep breath.. hopefully.. hopefully having just ended this all.

alright so to start off here im just going to say this app has so many no's that im going to straight deny it due to multiple concerns about things with it in fact im going to link the entirety of problems in the first post alone.
So first off im going to address this shifter form armor stuff
"As every moment the armor is on or the user is in shifter state 90% of the users energy is being sapped and stored within the armor for the time its released, it should be noted this "Energy" cannot be tampered with, accessed or stolen in any way shape or form, which also means of course that blackheart himself is unable to access any of it either. "
"This means that he weighs around 100 tons give or take, just from the added weight of the armor that the male wears at every second of the day, atleast when he is in his shifter state."
this to me is a no, considering energy is the basis of pre much errything, the fact hes hauling around an armor of monsterous levels with no energy means he must be some what pure will and would be dead after walking 2 feet, having enough energy to just walk around and then having this ontop of him would crush him, as without energy being tough means jack shit ever seen a person so tiered they can barley walk do workouts? no because its basically impossible regardless of how determined they are.
Next for the true appearance stuff.
"has been unburdened of an extreme amount of weight, which would of course free up the muscles, allowing for a wider range of motion, a greater speed and generally allowing for stamina to be greatly increased. As such movements including afterimages, and even speeds which can cause sudden shockwaves to compound from his streamlined and certainly quick footed form are not all that uncommon from the Davana Of Bare Hand Combat. In fact, his speed is comparable to a semi-speed specialized user, someone who is greatly gifted in that feild. Some of it being latent untapped raw potential. And some of it being that moving at even adept speeds in his shifter state requires extreme speed, stamina and more so explosive power to retain that consistancy over extended durations of time. So his slow-ness is merely because he is often training using that rediculously heavy armor to push himself."
this right here is a double entendre you say hes only a semi skilled and has slowness and then all of a sudden say hes unbelievable and able to cause sonic booms? i dun think so. not to mention you state this is raw potential.... what does this mean? if its potential it means its a thing that's not yet fully developed ... yet your saying it is out right beyond immense? next id probably say that i feel really uncomfartable with such high speed, yes his muscles would develop hugely under the weight but you also have to think hes so use to slow speeds that such unleashed ability hed probably end up falling head over heels under the pure levels he could reach so id say sure it could be immense but itd be better if he was less speed focused and more defense strength orientated with basic speed.
Next i wanna talk about this armor as well as your veil thing
This means that he weighs around 100 tons give or take, just from the added weight of the armor that the male wears at every second of the day, at least when he is in his shifter state.
100 Tons in the equivalent of a commercial airplane two story buildings way half of this, the pure fact is that this would honestly crush pretty much anyone without any sort of problem, therefore walking round hitting people with this is like an instant death machine to people with less than amazing defense and im uncomfortable with that considering honestly its like saying hes automatically on par with some of the monstrous strength guys.
Taking his armor off is equivalent to someone releasing into a psuedo bankai state, which is why while his spiritual energy is diminished when the armor is on, however when it is off, that energy comes surging through every orfice of the body, comparable to a visible fog which expands and contracts just over the vicinity of the skin, given that he is still a demon, and an old one at that, a very old one. Hence why of course this energy needs to be regulated and needs to be controlled. And this isn't by any degree the full brunt, given the way of use, his energy naturally is boiling at the seems at all moments, the aura or suffocating pressure about him being just the run off, what his body is naturally leaking out. Which is something heightened because his own body has especially large reserves, ones which allow of course for the amount of stamina and the powered force of attacks in use to be utilized accurately. However still much of the energy even in his true demon state is something which is internalized. Which is why this isn't comparable to a final release. At best this is equivalent to someone releasing into bankai in energy terms.
This to me explains in no part how hed regain any of the lost energy from the draining sure it would stop the leeching but it could in theory do nothing in the way of re adding to it. And because of that saying that it suddenly equals out to a bankai equivalent level is ridiculous and not even some of our 0-2 tiers could do something like that with all their energy being expended or even without it being expended its like saying hes the equivalent of bankai just straight up something that is honestly a no.
now for this physicality thing
"Strength And Body Physique: Being the Danava Of Bare Hand combat, without the encumberment of the armor, he tends to have a deceptively skinny physique which is then backed up by hard steel like bands of toned muscles, given the danava of bare-hand combat isn't over poweringly strong, in fact his strength is above par, but thats about it. Its the combination of his movements and his superior tension of his muscles when they become contracted and hard which gives him that force. The trick is that his super-charged muscles are able to become extremely hard when they are flexed, the tightening of his core much like a martial artist, or a boxer. Naturally though since he embodies bare handed combat, the hardness of his toned muscles are also pretty intense. Given his muscles when hard can be used to visibly deflect attacks from lower tiers.. to a point, cutting attacks possibly only doing bruising damage. So.. yes he has intense muscle mass in his body , but it isn't just the muscle mass.
However in terms of raw strength, he could using his force take out multiple city blocks, or maybe make a mile or two wide crater. But it isn't particularly unless he actually needs to use this strength that it can be used for better or greater feats. Instead though its also because of his origin power that his strength is intens. Given his base strength is barely up to what his strength becomes thanks to his origin power. "
Now why would he be skinny? this guy is carrying around intense levels of weight yet he is skinny... why? there is literally no explanation here? and yet again you have numerous double entendres saying "he isn't overpoweringly strong, in fact his strength is above par, but thats about it." then going on to say he can "using his force take out multiple city blocks, or maybe make a mile or two wide crater." this is completely ridiculous not to mention something like city blocks being just ripped apart is immense, honestly its like your making out that this char is a grand master in strength from the get go despite being say only a master ... what if he were a GM? he could rip apart the universe? this needs to be fixed incredibly so.
Next up this open a lot of concerns among not only myself but also other staff.
knowledge Of [ALMOST] All Martial Arts: BlackHeart being the Danava of Bare Hand Combat possesses extensive knowledge of virtually all forms of hand to hand fighting styles. This is shown because he is rarely suprised outwardly or mentally when fighting other hand to hand opponents. the speed of execution may suprise him, or the quickness but never the technique itself. This is partially because he is the concept of Bare Hand Combat, martial arts the knowledge of these things, everything concerning combat without weapons of any sort he knows of them kind of like how someone who for example was a danava of war can potentially know about whats going on in a battlefield without being in it. BlackHeart possesses that but instead its that he knows when individuals are creating new martial arts, he learns the style and as they are being created. Which is why if the martial art style is older then him he may not know it, or if somehow he overlooks a style he might not know it. Meaning there Are exceptions like everything else, but for the most part being he was created from the strong thoughts of all martial artists from a long time ago? He has had the pleasure of learning and being able to learn styles while they are being created from mundanes, or learn styles if he see's them more then 2 or 3 times.. with some proficiency. Which is how he again in battle displays this personality wise, because in terms of hand to hand combat, again he is rarely suprised.
now this has a lot of no written over it your saying that pretty much he just automatically knows every style ever to exist? thats problematic in the way he can in theory replicate every given thing ever without any work, sure a reference to someone doing something like this is the danava of war but 1. war only knows when war is going on he isn't instantly learning everything they're doing and 2 in War's case it's not that he knows when a battle is going on, is more or less he's the cause of it. so id much prefer if this is removed.
so onto the origin and its abilities
"meaning essentially you can use a move three times on him if he doesn't know it and it is hand to hand oriented. However if you use that move on him a fourth time? He will memorize it and it will remain a part of him for the rest of his life."
This right here is going in the nope pile mainly because your saying essentially you could completely copy a technique that someone else has created no permission needed no worries about it you just memorize said things easy done? sure 4 times makes it easier and id probably let this slide more if this app didn't have so many problems already but since it does im not to be very honest comfortable with this one.
now the abilities
"which are not amazing in terms of fighters who are specialized. But his Origin Grants Him what is known as a Trandescended Sensory, which elevates his sense of "Space" a loose term for the ability to conceive fighters and individual's presence even when they Are out of sight in a certain radius. In his case, this translates to a space in which he can sense even the smallest shift of the air, the simplest shift in demeanor, or the electrical pulse sent from someones muscle as it shifts."
Not going to lie im getting sick of these double entendres, either he is good at this like the power shows or he isn't simple facts stick to them.
"he generally can supress the pain from virtually any injury. For example you would strike every single nerve in his body at once, and he could potentially be able to ignore the pain, not because he's impossible to deal with, nor because he has no nerves. Its because pain and martial arts go hand in hand, fighting with your bare hands is something that requires a great deal of pain tolerance and skill to even do. Essentially meaning that he himself while he takes on opponents, is also used to dealing with the hellish amount of pain which goes with it. So he is known for having resilient pain endurance which is something that shouldn't be overlooked. "
this ... this is simply like your saying all of a sudden "PAIN GM FTW" those sorts of injuries to just suppress and ignore is ridiculous even by standards of a martial artist, hes endured shit sure but to just say he can ignore pre much any injury you throw at him and keep going no worries i don't like in the slightest
"it can cause buildings to crumble and it can also be mistaken for minor earthquakes. If used in conjunction with Internal Demonic Ki? He has the potential to ruin and change landscapes causing small towns or large towns to crush apart. However because his body is not about speed or strength, he doesn't have ungodly strength, in fact his strenght would pale when compared to someone who was soley talented in strength itself. So his strength is trained to the point that it needs to be at, not at the point that would be considered the "Absolute Max" seeing as there is no real need for perfect strength when the focus of ones talents is not on overpowering but combining his body perfectly to be used on the field of battle. "
this is contradictory to what you said earlier again, and not to mention you give no reason how this move raises his strength just lol it does? i don't think so. Not to mention the fact you've also stated he can level landscapes and rip shit apart like a friking monster its a no destroying something so massive is a huge feat and just erasing towns and shit is something even people like radioactive couldn't just do out of pure nowhere with a flick of his wrist.
"So if he absolutely needed to moving in one direct direction he could possibly go from russia to chile in around 2 hours. given he can move very very quickly, however he isn't focusing solely on speed. It instead is that his speed is focused to the level it needs to be at for him to utilize his fighting skills and combat effectively."
yet again same problem as the strength it needs some reasoning how, and not to mention you seem to go from hes okay to hes fucking great yet again just please for the love of god level it out make it huge or minor please.
"His muscles may not look perfectly toned, however each one of them is conditioned to the point its like flexible armor"
this one doesnt matter that much but honestly you say earlier he is perfect tones and shit and now he isnt ...... it just feels like your forgetting what your descriptions of the char are?
"This ki, travels through his bloodstream and through the cells in his body, regulating and regenerating his body as it is attacked. "
so now he has regeneration this needs more fleshing out because the wordings all wrong as your pre much saying he has a pre great regen ability all regeners on site have some downfalls and problems associated with it this if its that (it may just be wrong wording) needs something alot more of a flaw than it has.
now these physical abilities firstly you seem to be going in good direction but then it goes completely overboard to point just making it ridiculous one such example being below
" It is usually accompanied by a sonic boom due to the impact speed exceeding the speed of sound. Which will deal further concussive damage. "
this ability seemed to be going so well and then all of a sudden you put it can exceed the speed of sound, do you know how fast the speed of sound is? your saying his attack reaches mach speeds no problem .... you do realize the problem here right?
"used to generate crates equivalent to those from meteors."
This one right here is yet again quite obvious a no the fact it is making a meteor crater? that's beyond normal and beyond anything we can simply just shrug off as a "not overpoweringly strong, in fact his strength is above par, but that's about it."person just doing regardless of limits to it.
Another example here is
"Or it could cause possible death for normal individuals because it could cause the entire torso to dislodge, if nothing more then because of the speed that the user would have impacted the ground at."
this is an obvious no, just killing people with impact of speed is unbelievable, and this is a person you said earlier was only okay at speed remove this bit and the ideal of the move is fine but you seem to go from having a good thing to changing the entire abilities thing from its a good technique to its fucking amazing and will end you ....... that's not really how it works to be honest.
Okay so thats the entire first post that needs immense fixing ill say to ya right now all of this needs fixing and im not going to even look at the rest until its fixed, feel free to try and fix it all but until the point of change for it all .... i hate to say this but im throwing it in denied apps im sorry it feels shitty to do as this is my first but i cant accept this

Since Lio's fine with it and gave his approval, and after looking a few things out on the app and i don't feel like much of a problem, i'll give my 2nd approval since as Kyle said above about 'partial approval', and since shiz told me that lio intended to push up his tier a little bit, i'll just boost it up to 0-4+ for my 2nd approval as a mod. If there's any questions, hit me up and i'll deal with it.
After a proper discussion with lio, i was informed that he said nothing of sort about boosting tier and whatsoever, so i'll drop the tier back to 0-4 instead of 0-4+.
